350 Madison monthly meeting Sept 13

Event Dates: 

Please plan to join 350 Madison and friends on Monday, September 13, to learn about the steps needed to make government and organizational climate actions a reality — from policy to collaborative action. (Note that September’s meeting is a week later than usual, due to the first Monday of the month falling on Labor Day.) 

Our speaker, Morgan Edwards, will explain how we can use new data and models to understand the effects of state and local climate actions in the US. We will hear about the global significance of climate commitments from cities, states, and other non-federal actors — and how collaboration between researchers, policymakers, and community groups can help make sure these commitments lead to real reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The talk will draw on research on fossil fuel phaseout from the University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Climate Action Lab.

Edwards is an assistant professor at UW–Madison’s La Follette School of Public Affairs and the founder and director of the Climate Action Lab. Her research and teaching focus on using systems models and new data sources to design just energy responses to the climate crisis across policymaking scales. Morgan received her PhD in Engineering Systems from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Before coming to Madison last year, she was a President’s Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for Global Sustainability at the University of Maryland.
