The week of April 4th, 2016, The Power Dialog will support thousands of students to engage in face-to-face dialog with top state official in more than thirty states nationwide. The topic? State-level action to help meet the US climate commitment of 30% cuts in global warming pollution by 2030. How will it work? Hundreds of students from each state will head to their own state capitols. The Dialog gives students a voice in critical decisions that will determine their future, and the future of the earth.
Before engaging in a Power Dialog, faculty and students can research how the plan is shaping up in their state. Bard CEP is providing research projects, webinars, and other learning materials to get you started.
Learn about the Clean Power Plan, targeting 32% reduction of carbon emissions from 2005 levels by 2030. Different states have different goals: how (and if) these targets will be met is still being decided.
