EVENT: Climate Change – A Core National Security Priority in the Incoming Administration, Dec 15

Planning for the First Hundred Days and Beyond

Date: Dec 15, 2-4pm (Eastern Time)
Update (12/16/2020): See a recording of the virtual event below

In this virtual event hosted by the Center for Climate and Security (CCS), an institute of the Council on Strategic Risks, we will explore how the incoming U.S. Administration of Joe Biden should position itself to meet the threat of climate change from the outset.  We’ll discuss the commitments he’s already made; we will discuss recommendations from the Climate Security Plan for America – published by CCS and endorsed by dozens of military, foreign policy and intelligence experts, including eight retired four-star generals and admirals; and we will highlight steps that President-Elect Biden and his team should take in the first hundred days to establish a firm foundation to address climate security threats.

We’ll hear from a distinguished panel of CCS experts to discuss these matters, each of whom has invaluable experience driving progress on climate and security within the Federal Government: the Honorable Sherri Goodman, the Honorable Alice Hill, the Honorable Dennis McGinn and the Honorable Miranda Ballentine.  The panel will be moderated by John Conger, Director of the Center for Climate and Security.

To RSVP, please email events@climateandsecurity.org.  We will provide the Zoom link to attendees.
