With the recent Paris Climate Conference and the upcoming presidential election already setting the tone, 2016 is set to be a critical year for environment and energy policy.
To better understand these emerging trends and stories, the Science and Technology Innovation Program at the Wilson Center is teaming up with the Environmental Change and Security Program and the Society of Environmental Journalists to host the fourth annual “Year Ahead in Environment and Energy” event from 3:00-5:00 pm on Feb. 11, 2016 at the Wilson Center.
Please join us to hear from reporters and journalists from Huffington Post, National Geographic, Bloomberg BNA, Washington Post, Environment & Energy Daily, and more. This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required: http://pages.wilsoncenter.org/20160211YearAhead.html
