Letter writing to your representatives

Dr. Monalisa Chatterjee and Dr. Kate Svyatets from the Environmental Studies Program are offering a summer class (2018). The class will explore how science informs policy with an emphasis on climate change and other environmental issues. It’s a four week class, with two weeks in NYC/D.C. to meet with policy makers (at the United Nations, World Bank, EPA, etc) working on environmental aspects. The class is open to undergraduate and graduate students (Masters and PhDs) of all majors. They are happy to answer any questions. Email svyatets@usc.edu or monalisc@usc.edu for more information — they are happy to answer any questions you have!
