Climate Change Regulation and Action Plans in Environmental Planning

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 | 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM (ET)

About the Webinar

To kick off our NAEP & APU 2020 webinar series, we come together around Earth Day. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day, and we have come a long way in our knowledge of the environment in the decades since. Join us, as our speakers bring real world application of environmental projects to you. 

Who Should Attend

Environmental Science and Natural Science graduate students, undergraduate students, and faculty members. This webinar series targets early career professionals, including students, but mid- to late career professionals should also find the topics interesting and insightful. Webinars are offered for NAEP members and APU students, alumni, faculty, and staff. We also invite you to share this webinar series with colleagues interested in opportunities through NAEP and APU.
