Join us for our next Envirorun Lincoln Speaker Series event in October!
The Envirorun Lincoln Speaker Series will focus on Environmental Policy & Politics this month. This edition of the series features local leaders in an exciting panel discussion on local environmental policies, including topics such as the evolution of policymaking — from community engagement, policy framing, policy review and approval, policy implementation and more.
Our Speaker Series is designed to provide an opportunity to connect with the environmental community, with light refreshments and a casual atmosphere and it all takes place at the Turbine Flats (2124 Y St) Art Gallery!
