Environmental Conversations - Diversity in Environmental Organizations
Public scholarship and public outreach is an important goal for the Center for Environmental Politics. Environmental Conversations feature prominent environmental leaders/practitioners who share their perspectives on real-world environmental policymaking. During 2019-2020, in collaboration with the EarthLab, the Center for Environmental Politics will host three Walker Conversations. These events will be held in the Allen Library's Petersen Room, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.
