VoLo Foundation, in partnership with the University of Central Florida, invites you to the Second Annual Climate Correction, a conference and expo dedicated to sharing and collaborating on climate change solutions. Last year’s event filled the auditorium with attendees eager to learn from industry experts, like David S. Vogel, Katharine Hayhoe, Alex Slocum, and many more. In 2019, prepare to be blown away by cutting edge research and innovation; join us where crisis and opportunity intersect. If you have an interest in renewable energy, sea-level rise, clean eating, and sustainable living this conference is for you.

VISTA Award is for students who display exemplary leadership, along with Vision, Innovation, Sustainability, Technology, and Adaptation in climate solutions within Florida.

Finalist individuals or teams will present their ideas at the Climate Correction conference.

At Climate Correction 2019, we are highlighting the visuals that inspire change. We believe that meaningful art can connect us with our senses and that the response can prompt action within communities.
The 2019 theme is “Present Issues, Future Solutions”. Submit your piece highlighting community or technology-based solutions, real or imagined. All mediums are accepted, including ceramics, digital, metalwork, recycled materials, photography, and beyond. We encourage student artists to use underlying messages and include environmental, social, and economic concepts that may often be overlooked.
