Bard Center for Environmental Policy Presents
National Climate Seminar: The Power Dialog - National Update
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EDT/GMT-4
On March 30th, Eban Goodstein, Director of The Bard Center for Environmental Policy gave a national update on The Power Dialog.
The week of April 4th, Power Dialog conversations will be live in some 20 state capitols. Tune in to hear reports from the field about these upcoming events, and join a conversation about the challenges and rewards of engaging students in direct dialog with policy makers about global warming solutions.
According to Eban Goodstein Director of The Bard Center for Environmental Policy, "With the action now beyond the partisan wrangling of Washington and the state legislatures, students can gain both a powerful learning opportunity and a real voice in the policy process. The Power Dialog is not a lobbying effort. We have no collective policy agenda for which we are advocating. Rather it is a learning opportunity for students, and also a chance for students to share their own individual thoughts and policy insights."
