UNA Joined by Dr. Michael Dorsey for Young Professionals Dinner Series
Dr. Michael Dorsey, a climate justice expert and the Director of Energy and Environment at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies in Washington D.C., joined the UNA-SNY Young Professionals along with the Energy Project team for an intimate dinner conversation about both his academic research and work with the United Nations Government Liaison service regarding climate policy. The far reaching discussion included the realities of climate change we face at present and the injustice and unbalance globally for lower income countries with changed weather patterns and environmental hazards. Dr. Dorsey encouraged us as UNA members to act as advocates to influence policy at the United Nations through continued and sustained dialogue.
