The American Conservation Coalition (ACC) Summit will bring together 200 to 300 young activists to hear from elected officials, policy experts and advocates for a common-sense environmental agenda for the United States and the world.

The American Conservation Coalition (ACC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to mobilizing young people around environmental action with common-sense, market-based and limited-government ideals.

ACC was founded in June 2017 by a group of Millennials who saw an ideological gap in the environmental movement preventing necessary bipartisan action.

The Marriott City Center complex is located at 220 South State Street in downtown Salt Lake City.
