    As the 2020 election approaches, climate change will be top-of-mind for many voters. To capitalize on this opportunity, it’s imperative for climate and clean energy experts across disciplines to band together and center climate policies on people and communities beyond just the coasts — ensuring that our nation’s path forward on climate change will be effective, inclusive, equitable, and enduring.

    Join the University of Michigan and Third Way, a public policy think tank based in Washington, DC, for the second annual Fastest Path to Zero Summit in Ann Arbor, Michigan on September 17-18, 2020. This event brings together leading climate advocates, philanthropists, labor leaders, elected officials, academics, and media from across the Midwest and the nation.

    Our goal is to highlight the critical role the Midwest must play in putting the US on a path that eliminates emissions and helps us thrive economically in the 21st century.
