Join the Climate Action WebForum

May 29, 2019

The first topic in PWR’s Climate Action WebForum focuses on Juliana v United States, the historic Youth Climate Suit currently proceeding through the federal court system in the U. S. Please visit the WebForum to read and comment on the feature essay about this landmark case. We invite you to help start an online conversation and send us any questions you’d like to see discussed. 
The legal aspects and scientific foundations of Juliana v United States will also be the subject of the first webinar in our Faith and Climate Webinar Series on June 4, 2019, from 1:15 to 2:45 pm EDT. The webinar is organized in partnership with the Security and Sustainability Forum, with funding support from the Hanley Foundation. Moderated by President Emeritus of College of the Atlantic and PWR’s Chair of Climate Action David Hales, the webinar will feature Howard Learner, President and Executive Director of the Environmental Law & Policy Center and Dr. Brenda Ekwurzel, Director of Climate Science for the Climate & Energy Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists. 
Your questions and comments on the WebForum will become an important contribution to the webinar. Please join the conversation now — and register for the webinar on June 4!
