ACG Webinar: Climate Change and Energy Policy at the State Level

Event Date: 
April 21, 2021

While global challenges are addressed by national governments, increasingly subnational actors such as states, communities and cities have needed to step up to take action when traditional nation-states have been unable to make progress due to political polarization and partisan gridlock. This trend has also characterized transatlantic relations and the German-American partnership.

This trend holds true for states in both countries addressing the challenges posed by climate change and thinking about energy policy. How do federal policies, or lack thereof, influence policies at the state level? What incentives can states provide, but what also are the constraints to making policy and taking action? How are states integrating climate and energy policies into construction and urban development, economic development and job creation opportunities? What efforts are states making to move towards a clean energy economy?

To discuss these issues and to explore collaboration at the state level, the Aspen Institute Germany and the American Council on Germany invite you to the next discussion in our virtual event series State-to-State: German-American State Legislator Dialogue with German and American state legislators including Joschka Knuth, MdL (Alliance 90/The Greens), State Parliament of Schleswig-Holstein, Representative Ryan Mackenzie (R), Pennsylvania House of Representatives; and Representative Mari Manoogian (D), Michigan House of Representatives.

Please note that this event will be held in an interactive Zoom meeting format. Participants will have the chance to ask questions and exchange ideas with the speakers.

When: Wednesday, April 21, 2021, 12pm ET
