Get the training you need to become educated and empowered climate advocate
Has someone ever asked you a climate policy question you didn’t know the answer to? Or perhaps you want to dig deeper into the intricacies of carbon pricing, emissions mitigation strategies or the structure of electrical power industry?
If so, then this immersive Advanced Climate Policy Bootcamp is for you!
Upon completion of the Bootcamp, attendees will have an increased understanding of the more technical aspects of greenhouse gas mitigation policy, will increase their ability to make strategic advocacy decisions, and will be able to serve as a resource for their local group of climate advocates.
Two Learning Tracks
The Advanced Policy Bootcamp is organized by Professor Ross Astoria (JD/PhD). Professor Astoria teaches courses on policy and law at the University of Wisconsin at Parkside, including constitutional law, introduction to law, and environmental policy. He has published on constitutional law, international law, California’s cap-and-trade program, and utility law. He has over 15 years experience in designing and constructing curriculum and has recently organized a model international climate negotiations and a model constitutional convention.
Ross has been a CCL volunteer since 2011 and is presently serving as the chair of the board of directors for Citizens’ Climate Lobby. He and his family enjoy eating homemade pasta and climbing in the mountains.
