Climate Solutions: Power Dialogs (online)

About the Event

The Climate and Energy Policy Lab is participating in a nationwide series of Power Dialogs. The project will engage more than 100,000 students in critical conversations about Power as clean energy, but also about Power as engaged citizen action. The state-wide dialog will spotlight how transforming global energy and transportation in the 2020's will get us on the path to climate stabilization by 2030.

Questions to Explore

  • What would a clean energy revolution deliver on green jobs, access to reliable power, improved environmental quality and health and more accessible transportation?
  • Can a just and fair transition be achieved?
  • How can students and other help drive this change?
