About the Pre-Symposium Webinar Series

This pre-symposium webinar is the first of three events building to the 2021 Environmental Governance Lab (EGL) Symposium “Decarbonization in Hard Times.” Moderated by an EGL director, the three webinars will explore different aspects of the opportunities and challenges of decarbonization in a time of pandemic. 

About the 2021 Environmental Governance Lab Symposium
