Mason Climate Action Plan Town Hall @ Virtual
Jan 28 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

George Mason University is accelerating action in response to the climate crisis by developing a new Climate Action Plan (CAP).  The CAP will identify the most effective actions for the university to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and climate impact as quickly as feasible by focusing on electricity and fossil fuel use across all of Mason’s campuses.

All options are being considered to help Mason decrease its environmental impact and now is the time to share your thoughts!

You are invited to attend the second Town Hall to suggest ideas, offer feedback, ask questions, and learn more about the CAP process.  Register today!

Institute for Immigration Research (IIR) Panel Discussion: Migration During Global Change @ Virtual
Feb 1 @ 1:00 pm

Climate change and extreme weather events are already forcing millions of people to move, but current migration laws were not designed with climate migration in mind. On this webinar, experts will discuss how climate change creates migration, what steps the United States can take to respond to this challenge, and how immigrants are part of the solution.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Climate Change Communication and the Institute for Sustainable Earth.
