The EPSM program presents its first guest of the Spring 2018 speaker series, Visiting Professor John Clinton, who will give a talk titled, “Leveraging “We Are Still In”: A National Climate Change Network”.
The Leveraging We Are Still In network includes 40+ faculty and administrators from diverse disciplines at some 30 institutions. “Leveraging” builds on the momentum generated when U.S. federal authorities withdrew from the Paris climate accord, and in response hundreds of university presidents joined state/local government and business leaders to declare, “We Are Still In.” The Leveraging network underscores climate justice, conducts resource exchanges, and amplifies community-level approaches, while coordinating with complementary networks and government and nonprofit agencies.
Professor John Clinton is leading the development of a national network of higher education/community partnerships addressing climate change. He was founding chair of the Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management (EPSM) Program, and is currently Visiting Associate Professor in EPSM. Professor Clinton’s talk will review the goals and activities of the Leveraging network, and—especially—opportunities for participation.
