What is the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act and how’s it being implemented? What does it mean for you?
A panel of diverse leaders from New York State will share their insights of this new law on our state’s journey to climate neutrality.
Being the fourth most populous state and third largest economy in the United States, New York’s groundbreaking and ambitious new climate law— the recently enacted Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act—has an opportunity to make a big step forward in our collective work to reduce our carbon emissions.
The University at Buffalo is hosting a conversation around the most aggressive climate change law in the country. The forum— Creating a Pathway to Climate Neutrality in NY: The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act— is a solutions focused discussion where the audience will hear from policymakers, businesses, social justice advocates, environmentalists, academics, thought leaders and others as they take a deeper dive into the new legislation and what it means to achieving climate neutrality.
The event is on October 17th from 6-7:30pm at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in downtown Buffalo. Refreshments and a cash bar will be available at 5:30pm.
