Paris to DC: Acting for Affordable Clean Energy

March 3, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us on March 3rd for an interactive  panel discussion entitled “Paris to DC: Acting for Affordable Clean Energy.”

The focus will be on the newly enacted 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21)  and the United Nations’ Global Goal 7, which is aimed at ensuring access to affordable clean energy.
We are bringing the conversation home and empowering everyday citizens to translate the global initiatives at a local level. The intent of the panel discussion is to foster a dialogue with attendees, and ultimately compile practical actions and next steps that local residents can take in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. The program will seek to educate, advocate, and motivate residents.  A social media campaign will supplement the intent by engaging interested folks leading up to and following the discussion.
When: Thursday, March 3, 2016; 6:30-8:30 pm
Where: United Nations Foundation, 1750 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20006
Cost: Members: $10; Nonmembers: $15; Students: free (For student registration please contact  UNA-NCA)
