Ready to make a difference in climate policy? But not sure where to start? We have you covered. The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to join us for our all-new, start-of-the-new-Congress Climate Camp online briefing series. We will go over the basics of the legislative process, highlighting key areas and opportunities for achieving near-term and long-term carbon reductions through policy.
Our first session will bring you up to speed on the budget and appropriations process already underway for fiscal year 2022. Presenters will draw on examples of funding for climate, energy, and environment programs to bring the process to life and show how it plays out in practice. Then, the session will dive into how stimulus packages take shape, the role of climate action in stimulus, and what to expect in the upcoming months as the new administration and the 117th Congress work to address the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
EESI’s Congressional Climate Camp is designed for you to get the information you need, so join us for the full session or jump in and out.
