Washington is gridlocked on climate solutions — as well as many other policy matters. The scientific community is using ever-starker language to describe risks arising from a warming climate. Against this backdrop, a number of American political leaders are calling for new, more ambitious climate solutions. One of the most visible and ambitious is the proposal of a “Green New Deal” to transform America’s energy system, create new jobs through massive investments in clean energy and public infrastructure, and address social challenges such as the need for living wages, healthcare and environmental justice. On February 7, the Women in Energy program of the Center on Global Energy Policy will host an all-student roundtable with Rhiana Gunn-Wright of New Consensus, a Chicago-based policy design shop. Gunn-Wright is the 29-year-old policy director of New Consensus and is leading an effort to build out the elements of what a Green New Deal should include. — This event is open to all students. Registration is required. Space is limited therefore please register only if you can commit to attending the roundtable. Lunch will be provided. For more information contact: [email protected].
