The First 100 Days: A Conversation with Carol Browner on Environmental Policy After the Election

Harvard community members are invited to a discussion with Carol Browner, U.S. EPA Administrator from 1993-2001, and Director of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy 2009-2011. Hosted by Rand Wentworth, who teaches "Environmental Politics" at HKS, and moderated by CPL Bacon Fellows Lia Cattaneo and Claire Henly, Ms. Browner will discuss the environmental and climate policies that the Biden team is considering in the event of a Biden-Trump transition.

Registration required for link.


Prior to every U.S. presidential election, transition teams on both sides prepare policy proposals for the first 100 days. In this campaign, the candidates have voiced dramatically different views on climate change, environmental regulations, environmental racism and integrating climate goals in economic recovery. This series of workshops will look at potential risks and opportunities facing both transition teams in 2021. Is there room for collaboration on climate change, no matter who comes into power? Because this election will have a big impact on countries around the world, the workshop series will include perspectives of global environmental leaders.

Moderators: Louis and Gabrielle Bacon Fellows in Environmental Leadership, Lia Cattaneo and Claire Henly

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 in collaboration with the Environment and Natural Resource Program at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs
