The Portsmouth Conference will take place at the historic Wentworth by the Sea Hotel & Spa, which hosted the Portsmouth Peace Treaty participants in 1905. The treaty earned President Theodore Roosevelt the 1906 Nobel Peace Prize. The Portsmouth Conference is hosted by Citizens Count, a non-partisan public information platform with a community of more than 200,000. The 2018 conference will provide a platform for discussion on the policies and initiatives associated with climate rather than the science behind it. With an international panel of speakers, the goal is to set a precedent for an open and civil dialogue that will help participants to better understand the impact and possibilities around climate policy choices.
