Register above for Part 1 of the PCCN Community Forum on September 25. Part 1 will take place from 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm.
The President’s Commission on Carbon Neutrality (PCCN) will be hosting a Community Forum on September 25 from 4:30-6 pm at the Rackham Graduate School. This PCCN Community Forum has two primary purposes: 1) to update the community on PCCN progress through a presentation and Q&A with the commission co-chairs, and 2) to facilitate community engagement with Internal Analysis Team (IAT) faculty leads, who are in the early stages of shaping topic-specific research that will help inform the commission in developing its recommendations.
In pursuit of these goals, the event will consist of two parts.
(SPACE AVAILABLE) Part 1 will take place in plenary in the Rackham Amphitheatre with updates provided by the Commission Co-chairs. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions regarding commission progress and process.
(FULL) Part 2 will consist of small group discussions in the Rackham Assembly Hall and West Conference Room. This will be an opportunity for participants to share individual ideas and perspectives with the IAT faculty leads. Each IAT topic will have a designated table, where the small group discussion will begin with a brief description of the team scope and trajectory. A volunteer note-taker at each table will synthesize the discussion (preferably via word document) for submission to the Commission and IATs.
A list of IAT topics and faculty leads is provided below:
