      National Climate Seminar:  Jobs, A Green New Deal, and Solving Climate by 2030

      The 2030 date to achieve the Paris Climate Accords is forcing all of us to rethink "Business As Usual." Join  Joseph Kane, of The Brookings Institution, on Bard’s National Climate Seminar for a conversation on the economic impacts of sustainability and the Green New Deal on November 13th.

      This webinar is part of a year-long project: Solve Climate By 2030  sponsored by The Bard Center for Environmental Policy  The project takes as its starting point recent IPCC report that we have only ten years to forestall catastrophic climate change. Combining a national speaker network with a call for One-Night Teach-ins, the project culminates on April 7, 2020, in a national Power Dialog: 52 simultaneous, university hosted webinars, one in every state, DC and Puerto Rico. In these webinars, local climate solutions experts will suggest the top three ambitious but feasible state, urban, utility or business initiatives that need to occur in Tennessee and Idaho, Missouri and New Jersey, Florida, and Minnesota,  if we aim to forestall catastrophic climate change. Following these state webinars, classes and other groups tuning in will have 45 minutes for “solutions sprints” designed to identify civic action opportunities for participants.
