Sunday Forum: Climate Change and the Private Sector Response

December 10, 2017 @ 10:10 am - 10:55 am

First Unitarian Church of Milwaukee

Presenter: Matthew Rochte, Executive Director, Milwaukee Sustainability Roundtable.

Sustainability is no longer a buzzword in the business community; it has become a new norm. For some it is a strategic opportunity; for others it is simply another process. The U.S. political change in 2017 toward isolationism and doubt of scientific evidence has resulted in President Trump stating a position that the U.S. will withdraw from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement in 2020.

Where does the private sector stand? How are they responding?

Sunday Forum is a Sunday morning lecture series at First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee that showcases provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education and more. Click here for a full list of coming Forum programs . The Forum — in Max Otto Hall on our second floor — begins at 10:10 a.m. and lasts about 45 minutes. Speakers give a 30-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. Coffee is served. Childcare is available.

Program host: Bruce Wiggins
