How is the U.S. viewed internationally on climate change? What role does it play in international governing bodies? What domestic policies and political considerations have influenced this role? Discuss how climate hazards threaten infrastructure, health, and security, and what policies can help shape our response to such challenges. Delve into how the legislative and administrative policymaking processes work, then engage with specific examples of U.S. public health and climate policies. From renewable energy incentives to power plan regulations, find the common threads that contribute to the success or failure of climate policies. With an understanding of the current climate and health issues facing the U.S., develop ideas for how government policies can address them. Learn and practice essential tools for effective advocacy at the local and state level, such as message development, social media, networking, and public speaking.
