Earth Day 2021: Where Do We Stand?

Kaneb Lecture Series

A Kaneb Lecture

The Biden Administration has made climate change a higher priority than any previous administration, and is widely expected to announce new commitments at the Earth Day Summit. This panel will explore those commitments, Biden Administration policy to date, and the Summit, more broadly, through four critical lenses: justice, health, security, and investment.
