Fireside Chat with Reid Detchon
Monday, February 5, 2024, 3:00 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada) (UTC-05:00)
Registration is closed - Event is full
Join us to socialize at Barbara Brown and Bob Berish's home, followed by an engaging conversation with BMAV member Reid Detchon on "how I keep hope alive" after 30 years of working on climate change and clean energy policy. Is the worsening climate crisis too hard to fix? Will technology come to the rescue, or are we already cooked? What can we do as individuals to secure a better future for our children - and their children?
Space is limited and RSVP is required. Parking will be available on the street or, for those with mobility issues, in the driveway.
