    Claudine Schneider, Former U.S. Congresswoman, Entrepreneur, and Climate Advocate 
    February 23 at 3 pm (Note: date change from January 26)
    Followed by a Reception at 4 pm
    Location: SEEC Auditorium (C120), 4001 Discovery Drive, Boulder, CO 80303
    In a conversation with C-SEF Director Matt Burgess, Rep. Claudine Schneider will share her experiences as a climate leader in government, business, and civil society. In Congress, Rep. Schneider sponsored the Global Warming Prevention Act of 1989, and she earned a reputation as one of the House’s strongest environmental advocates. Since leaving Congress, she has been an Emmy award recipient, a faculty member at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, as well as an entrepreneur, consultant, and advocate for zero-carbon technology, climate action, and democracy. The conversation will focus on Rep. Schneider's insights into how to get things done and bring people together for the climate.
    This Center for Social and Environmental Futures (C-SEF) Get Serious* Seminar will take place at 3:00 pm. A reception will follow at 4:00 pm. All are welcome. Location details will be announced shortly.
    This event will be in person and live streamed.
    *Conversations about environmental problems too often focus on sweeping and vague solutions. In contrast, C-SEF's Get Serious seminars will highlight people working on important but often-overlooked details of solving environmental problems. They will give students a sense of the many different possible ways to make a difference in sustainability.
