  • This event has passed.

Join the United Nations Association – National Capital Area (UNA-NCA) and Leaders in Energy on March 3rd for an interactive panel discussion entitled “Paris to DC: Acting for Affordable Clean Energy.”

The focus will be on the newly enacted 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21) and the United Nations’ Global Goal 7, which is aimed at ensuring access to affordable clean energy.

UNA-NCA, in partnership with Leaders in Energy, will be bringing the conversation home and empowering everyday citizens to translate the global initiatives at a local level. The intent of the panel discussion is to foster a dialogue with attendees, and ultimately compile practical actions and next steps that local residents can take in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. The program will seek to educate, advocate, and motivate residents. A social media campaign will supplement the intent by engaging interested folks leading up to and following the discussion.

When: Thursday, March 3, 2016; 6:30-8:30 pm

Where: United Nations Foundation, 1750 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC, 20006
