Event description

Description

The shockwaves of Donald Trump’s 2016 election to the US Presidency continue to be felt far and wide. Trump’s stance on the environment and overt climate change denial and have ramifications far beyond US shores. Join Sara Bice as she walks you through the emerging and worrisome implications of what a Trump presidency really means for the environment and the closely related practice of impact assessment covering both environmental impact assessment and the social impact of major business investments. Having recently returned from the 2017 International Association for Impact Assessment conference in North America and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University, Sara will share her recent insights and those of her US-based colleagues.

· What will a Trump presidency mean for the Paris Agreement?

· How are Trump’s picks for key offices (e.g. EPA, Energy Secretary) affecting the US commitments to climate change mitigation?

· What could a Trump presidency mean for climate change mitigation, more generally?

· Does it matter whether a US President supports climate change mitigation or not? Will this really affect us all the way in Australia?

· What will a Trump presidency mean for corporate social responsibility, social performance and the assessment of the social impact of major business decisions?

· And what can the impact assessment community and those concerned about social performance and the environment do about it?

We hope to see you for a night of deep discussion, generation of new ideas and a reminder of the importance of resistance when progress on the environment and treatment of communities is threatened.
