Subject: Climate Action Forum 2016
On May 4, the University of Maryland will host the Climate Action 2016 forum,
a public conference in support of the objectives of the Climate Action 2016
multi-stakeholder summit to be held in Washington, DC on May 5-6. Held at the
Stamp Student Union at the University of Maryland, the forum will provide an
opportunity for discussion among academia and a diverse range of stakeholders
with an interest in advancing the climate implementation agenda post-Paris.
Especially for those of you invloved in environmental policy, this event is
one that you can not miss. University of Maryland is part of a historical
pivot in the climate change discussion and the action itself.
The forum will convene some 20 sessions across six thematic tracks: city and
sub-national implementation, resilience/adaptation, energy, sustainable
land-use, analysis & tools to support decision-making, and climate & society.
An opening plenary session will feature U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, a luncheon
plenary will include Mr. Stephen Heintz, President of the Rockefeller
Brothers Fund, and a closing plenary will feature former Maryland Governor
Martin O’Malley and the next generation of student climate leaders.
