Join us for our monthly EcoReps workshop featuring locals making a difference in sustainability!
Our guest for September 25th will be Ruth Ann Reteneller, a local organizer for the Louisville chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby.
CCL is a national organization dedicated to tackling our addiction to fossil fuels through the adoption of a carbon fee and dividend that would tax carbon at the point of extraction and return the revenue equitably to all citizens.
H.R. 763, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, is a bipartisan, revenue neutral climate solution promoted by CCL. Many predict that if it becomes law, carbon emissions in the US will be reduced by 40% in 12 years and the economy will be improved through market stimulation.
Come learn more about how this works, why it is urgent, how you can get involved, and what it's like to be a citizen lobbyist for sustainability.
The Sustainability Council’s EcoReps program is designed to move students, faculty & staff beyond talk to action for a more sustainable UofL! We provide basic training & resources, service opportunities, and leadership positions as a point-person & peer-to-peer advocate for sustainability.
This fall, we continue our series of in-person and virtual workshops each month on last Fridays at noon in Ekstrom Library room W210. All are welcome. More info on EcoReps website.
