April 2, 2018
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Krannert Hall 140


The event will feature the perspectives of four individuals who have worked on realistic and equitable policy solutions to climate change at every level of governance: local, state, national, and global. In the first half of the program, each speaker will describe their experience and ideas for creating realistic solutions to climate change in their particular political context. The second half of the program will feature a discussion among the panelists as well as a question and answer session with the audience.  The event is intended to offer diverse perspectives for making progress on the challenge of climate change across political scales, based on the substantial experience of each panelist working on the issue.
