CREATING A PATHWAY TO CLIMATE NEUTRALITY!!
University at Buffalo Downtown
Oct. 17 2019, 6-7:30
The University is hosting an exciting conversation around the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act on October 17th with leaders from across the State. Being the fourth most populous state and third largest economy in the United States, New York’s groundbreaking and ambitious new climate law— the recently enacted Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act—has an opportunity to make a big step forward in our collective work to reduce our carbon emissions.
The forum— Creating a Pathway to Climate Neutrality in NY: The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act— is a solutions focused discussion where the audience will hear from policymakers, businesses, social justice advocates, environmentalists, academics, thought leaders and others as they take a deeper dive into the new legislation and what it means to achieving climate neutrality.
The event is on October 17th from 6-7:30pm at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in downtown Buffalo. Refreshments and a cash bar will be available at 5:30pm.
Registration is mandatory. Please RSVP here:
