2024 Breakthrough Dialogue

Dear Invited Guest,

We’re pleased to invite you to participate in our 2024 Breakthrough Dialogue, taking place June 19 - 21 at Cavallo Point in Sausalito, CA.

This year we’ll celebrate the twenty years that have passed since the publication of “The Death of Environmentalism,” the essay that presaged ecomodernism, launched the Breakthrough Institute, and ignited an identity crisis from which the environmental movement is still recovering. This Dialogue offers all of us, at Breakthrough and throughout our network of fellow travelers and critics, and opportunity to reflect on the ways environmentalism has evolved, for better and for worse, over the past two decades. We’ll also consider the state of ecomodernism, and the possible futures for an environmental politics of abundance and opportunity. For those interested in these subjects, this is a can’t-miss event.

Through working on new types of engagement, and staying connected to our growing network of guests, our organization and programming team works diligently to make this experience a valuable one that is worth returning to year after year. So we ask that all participants, if they are able to do so, share at least some of the expense of organizing and convening this event.

All invitees will receive the same $2500 registration request.

  • If you or your institution are able to pay the full cost of registration, we ask that you do. Click ‘Conference registration $2500’ below.

  • If you are not able to pay the full cost, then click the “Register with Conference Support” button below. You will be offered a sliding scale registration from which to choose.

We also recognize that not everyone is able to pay, and we do not want the cost of registration to be an obstacle for anyone who would like to attend the event. It’s important to us that we remain equitable and create opportunities for people who may not otherwise be able to attend due to lack of funding. If you are not able to cover any part of the registration fee, please don’t hesitate to request a full scholarship to attend the event.

Those who wish to apply for full scholarship support can fill out a request form here. We also encourage those who are able to do so to contribute to our scholarship fund, which will allow us to offer support to more attendees. Paying guests will have the opportunity to contribute an extra donation when they register.
