One Year Later, Part One: Our Air, Land and Water

February 8, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm CST

| $30

How do the Great Lakes—the Chicago region’s greatest natural asset—stand to benefit or suffer from current budget and policy decisions? How do our National Parks—America’s best idea—and other federally-protected lands fit into to the current administration’s agenda, and what might it mean for Pullman, Indiana Dunes, and other national treasures? And how will the Trump Administration’s approach to climate change, environmental protections and economic development affect the very air we breathe? Join policy experts and former federal staffers for a conversation on the future of our environment in an uncertain time.

Moderated by Justin Kaufmann, host of WGN Radio’s The Download, event panelists include:

  • Cameron Davis,  Vice President, GEI Consultants & former Senior Advisor, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  • Amir Jina, Assistant Professor, Energy Policy Institute, University of Chicago
  • Sandra Washington, former Associate Regional Director for Planning, Cultural Resources, Compliance, Construction, Communication, Legislative and Congressional Affairs, National Park Service
