For a cleaner, more prosperous world, ACC mobilizes conservatives around environmental issues, fostering collaboration in the pursuit of environmental conservation.

Who We Are

The nomination portal is now open for ACC, Audubon, and EarthX’s 30 Under 30: The Green Generation.  Individuals can nominate young environmental heroes that are working toward bipartisan and impactful environmental action.  This will be the first large-scale event that highlights and recognizes young activists, business leaders, political pioneers, and innovative thinkers who are working to improve environmental outcomes.  ACC is encouraging people to take advantage of this opportunity to recognize those who are leading the way by nominating them through the portal.

ACC President Benji Backer said: “There are countless young Americans making a massive difference in the environmental space. Whether they are nonprofit activists, young legislators, or corporate sustainability leaders, young people are leading the charge for a better future. We are excited to partner with EarthX and begin by opening the nomination portal to prepare for our inaugural event this spring.”

30 Under 30: The Green Generation is looking for environmental pioneers and trailblazers focused on issues including, but not limited to: ocean/water, wildlife, conservation, land management, clean energy, sustainability, and climate solutions. The event will be held on April 27th at EarthX—the nation’s largest environmental event held in Dallas. Award winners will be able to participate in a half-day, panel-style event addressing many of the issues we face regarding our environment and will also be recognized at a dinner that evening.
