Strengthening Our Energy Security Future

Chicago Council on Science and Technology presents

Strengthening Our Energy Security Future

Rising seas, food shortages, extreme weather and other consequences of climate change all impact national security. These events can accelerate instability in a region, and fuel conflicts. Join us for a discussion on strengthening our future energy security through the adoption of advanced energy solutions that will diversify the U.S. economy, increase resiliency and reliability, and mitigate the global impacts of climate change.

To gain a clearer picture of the issue, this event will begin with a segment from the feature film “The Age of Consequences” (Available on STARZ) followed by a panel discussion with experts.

This public program is the culminating event for participants in the 2017 Veteran’s Energy Seminar, which educates veterans, reservists, and military spouses on global energy security challenges to inspire continued service to the country through careers in the energy industry, policy, and entrepreneurship. C2ST welcomes you to this discussion.
