2024 Environmental Summit to include Electric Vehicles, FoodWaste, Pesticides, PFAS in Drinking Water, More
HARTFORD – The 2024 Environmental Summit, produced annually by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters, will feature panel discussions and expert presentations ranging from vehicle emissions standards and the role of electric vehicles to PFAS in drinking water, food waste, pesticides, sustainable energy, nature-based climate solutions, and more.
This daylong gathering of policymakers, elected leaders, advocates and experts in various fields is scheduled for Jan. 23 at the Connecticut Science Center, Hartford.
“The Environmental Summit is a way to bring awareness to the priorities we plan to address during the upcoming legislative session, which this year opens on Feb. 7,” said CTLCV Executive Director Lori Brown.
For more than 20 years, CTLCV has been a leading voice for the environment at the State Capitol. The League’s efforts working with advocates and legislative leaders has resulted in many legislative wins over the years that help the state meet its climate and environmental goals, most recently fighting to reduce transportation emissions as a way to reverse Connecticut’s worsening air pollution.
“Each year, the Summit identifies major environmental challenges facing our state and highlights the legislative and administrative solutions that are being proposed. It is a unique networking opportunity and gives everyone the basic information they need to get involved in the issues they care about,” said Brown.
Those interested in attending can register here for both in-person and virtual attendance. Complimentary tickets are available for those 25 and under.
Information about remaining sponsorship opportunities is available by contacting Connor Yakaitis, Development Director of the CTLCV Education Fund, at (860) 236-5442 or email@example.com and at CTLCV.org
