Happy Friday! Thanks to everybody who came out for the Meatless March Happy Hour!
If you missed it, no worries! We have plenty of events for you attend. Please find some listed below!
Carbon Fee & Dividend Info Session:
Date/Time: Tuesday, April 4, 1:00 – 2:00 pm
Location: IAB, 501B
ECO will host Robert Werner of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby to speak about CCL’s work to win a fee & dividend carbon pricing system. Learn about the philosophy behind a fee & dividend system, as opposed to a carbon tax or cap-and-trade system. CCL has a complex policy map and research informing their campaign and a unique view of what to do with revenue from carbon taxation. Future policymakers in the energy and environmental realm should take note! Food will be served and we hope to see you there!
