TEACH IN: Fastest Path to Zero Carbon Emissions: Building an Exemplar for Deploying Clean Energy

March 13 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Teach-In: Fastest Path to Zero Carbon Emissions: Building an Exemplar for Deploying Clean Energy. Image is of the following speakers: Todd Allen: Fastest Path to Zero; Suzanne Hobbs Baker: Fastest Path to Zero; Charlie Michaels: Center for Socially Engaged Design; Ann Verhey-Henke: Center for Socially Engineered Design.

Fifty years ago, U-M held the nation’s first “Environmental Teach-In” in March, 1970. The five-day event served as a model for the first Earth Day celebrations held nationwide the following month on April 22. Today, concerns about our environment are more urgent than ever. Join the University of Michigan March 9–14 as Earth Day at 50, a yearlong commemoration of that event, comes to a crescendo with speakers, teach-ins and activities across campus and various Ann Arbor venues.

The Department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences is hosting two events. These events are free and open to the public – please join us in support of Earth Day!

Deploying clean energy is a complex multi-disciplinary task and, to be most successful, requires approaches that combine the best technology, acceptable costs, public policy approaches, and social decisions.
