California's natural resources, economy, demographics and political system have made it a unique laboratory for environmental policy over the past half century. As a result, California has often led both the nation and the world in recognizing environmental challenges, and in fashioning creative and effective solutions to them.
This conference will bring together leading environmental policymakers, scholars and legal practitioners to address California's current and future role at the forefront of environmental law and policy development. In the process, speakers will map for conference attendees California's environmental policy agenda for the coming decades. That agenda, in turn, has broad ramifications, inasmuch as California's environmental dilemmas are a microcosm of those faced nationally and globally. The environmental solutions California devises to those problems will doubtless prove influential far beyond our borders.
Specific topics to be addressed at the conference include:
