Belmont Science-Civic-Media Literacy Program
June 21, 2018 at Belmont Public Library Assembly Room at 7:00 PM
How can we fight the present assault on our environment? Personal commitments such as recycling and electric cars are good steps, but because of the current anti-environment policies we need to be much more assertive to avoid environmental disaster. We need the force of the law. This public seminar shows how public action can defeat the attack on our environment.
Wendy Jacobs, Director of the Emmett Environmental Law and Policy Clinic at Harvard Law School will explain the environmental situation and discuss how citizens can utilize the law to restore protective regulations.
