Making Nature Count

November 14, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


How might we rewrite the rules of the market system so that nature “counts” – and how might we find creative ways to address this issue in our current policy environment? Join leaders in the private sector, NGOs, finance, and academia for a stimulating discussion with multiple viewpoints.

The panel begins at 6:30 p.m. with an exciting line up featuring:

  • J Drake Hamilton, Science Policy Director, Fresh Energy
  • Mark Kriss, Co-Founder & Managing Partner, Macroclimate
  • Stephen Polasky, Regents Professor and Fesler-Lampert Professor of Ecological/Environmental Economics, University of Minnesota
  • Raj Rajan, Fellow, Institute on the Environment

This discussion will be emceed by Tom Weber, an award-winning journalist for two decades, most recently for Minnesota Public Radio news. In his ten years at MPR, he covered education and co-hosted the talk show “The Daily Circuit” before becoming host of his own show in 2014. That show, “MPR News with Tom Weber,” focused on important issues in the news in Minnesota.
