On Thursday, February 27 the University of Pittsburgh Global Studies Center will host the third of four events addressing the politics of global climate change. All events are free and open to the public, located at O’Hara Student Center from 4:00 – 5:30 pm. See the full schedule of events here.
The upcoming event is titled Outside Pressure: NGOs as Climate Change Stakeholders. Daniel Lashof, director of the Natural Resources Defence Council’s climate and clean air program, will discuss how civil-society groups can influence international climate decisions within the UN, and what possibilities and limitations citizens face when trying to shape global environmental politics. The Global Studies website provides background readings to enhance the discussion.
