Summary

A nationwide series of campus and community Power Dialogs will educate students about Power as clean energy, but also about Power as engaged citizen action. Dialogs will spotlight how transforming global energy and transportation in the 2020's will get us on the path to climate stabilization by 2030. What would a clean energy revolution deliver on green jobs, access to reliable power, improved environmental quality and health and more accessible transportation? Can a just and fair transition be achieved? How can students and other help drive this change? The project has two components:

One-Night Teach-Ins & Speakers Network Presentations, Fall-Winter 2019-2020 and a National Power Dialog, Tuesday, April 7, 2020. The webinar will discuss the project and how faculty, students and others can get involved. https://www.bard.edu/cep/solardominance/
