Description:

Rebecca Bertram, Climate Network Program Director of the Heinrich Boll Foundation, North America, will discuss the new German governmental policies, and practices, in their national effort to convert to sustainable energy.

Germany’s plans are to be almost completely reliant on clean, renewable, sustainable energy sources by 2050. Implications for California will be discussed. Dialogue will follow on the meaning of the German model for California with Jim Stewart, Co-Chair, Sierra Club California Energy-Climate Committee, Yassamin Kavezade of UCR CalPIRG and others.
