ABOUT THIS SERIES:

The First 100 Days: Climate and Environmental Policy in the Biden Administration

Prior to every U.S. presidential election, transition teams prepare policy proposals for the first 100 days. Throughout this year’s campaign, the candidates voiced dramatically different views on climate change, environmental regulations, racism and integrating climate goals in economic recovery. This series of workshops will look at potential risks and opportunities for action on climate change by the Biden administration.

Led by: Rand Wentworth, Louis and Gabrielle Bacon Senior Fellow in Environmental Leadership; President Emeritus of the Land Trust Alliance.

Hosts: Bacon Environmental Fellowship at the Center for Public Leadership; Environment and Natural Resource Program at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs; Climate, Energy & Environment PIC (CEE-PIC), a student organization at HKS.
