Climate change is among the most pressing environmental issues of our time. On the basis of this shared belief, the co-hosts are convening the NH Youth Climate and Clean Energy Town Hall, a youth-centered educational forum for engaging the 2020 presidential candidates around climate and clean energy.
New Hampshire is a training ground for many of the brightest scientific scholars and future business and environmental leaders. Young people will inherit the consequences of today's public policy decisions; this town hall gives students a non-partisan platform to ask informed questions about climate solutions and their environmental future.
Presidential candidates will provide an opening statement, presenting their climate change action and clean energy priorities. This will be followed by a moderated question-and-answer session led by New Hampshire graduate, undergraduate, and high school students engaged in climate research, clean energy, and environmental studies around the world.
