Event Description:

What's happening with the Houston region environment? How bad is it? The people of Houston suffer the ill effects day in and day out and seem unable to make their voices heard by most elected officials. What can we do?

Come to the Environmental Summit on Sunday, June 10 at the University of Houston's Main Campus, University Center, to find out what's happening, who's working for the people of Houston, what you can do, and how we can all work together. The event will feature a keynote by Houston Mayor Bill White and introductory comments by well-known environmental activist, Jim Blackburn.

In addition to Dr. Stephen Klineberg of Rice University discussing survey research about environmental opinions, a variety of environmental groups and political groups will offer comments about environmental goals, issues and key challenges in the near future. Global warming expert Jim Marston will attend along with representatives of Sierra Club, Mothers for Clean Air, Galveston Bay Foundation, GHASP, Environmental Defense and more…

The event's objectives are to broadly increase knowledge of environmental issues and introduce organizations to political activists of Harris County and surrounding areas. The goal is to substantially increase interaction between people active in environmental issues and partisan politics.
