Charting a Sustainable Recovery

May 22, 2020 @ 12:00 am

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, policymakers are drafting the largest economic stimulus packages in history. These policies offer a tremendous opportunity to invest in sustainability-related initiatives. This webinar will examine:

– How should we think about the environment during and after the pandemic?

– What key opportunities and needs exist for environmental investments in COVID economic stimulus packages?

– What can the public sector do to advance sustainability goals at the local, state, and federal level? How can investments maximize social, economic, and environmental benefits?
