WaBA/CaPI Event:

2nd Annual Future of Carbon Policy Forum

Thursday, December 12, 2019, 4-6:00 PM
Mercer Island Community & Event Center

NOTE: Please register in advance to help us prepare your name tag for quick pickup and facilitate seating so we can start on time.

Join other leaders for a high level perspective on Washington state’s progress towards effective climate change management. We’ll review what’s working, what’s not, and where we want to be going in 2020 and beyond. 

The program will feature a series of short mini-briefings covering a range of policy issues, including both Low Carbon Fuel Standard and Cap & Invest, followed by a respondent panel covering topics including the state’s master plan for managing carbon issues, the implications of I-976, and priorities for next session.

The forum will bring together a wide array of perspectives on these topics, including those of state lawmakers. We hope you can join in and help build a deeper and more inclusive dialogue.

And we’ll socialize after the review with some refreshments.  All at the beautiful Mercer Island Community & Event Center, a minute off I-90, with free parking and an EV charger.
