Ritter Hall, Cecil B. Moore Avenue, Philadelphia, PA, USA

In partnership with Temple University’s Office of Sustainability, Defend Our Future invites you for an evening discussion about the future of the Green Economy in Temple’s Walk Auditorium.

We are gathering stakeholders ranging from economists, elected officials, industry leaders, and experts to participate in a conversation and Q&A about topics ranging from green collar jobs and the Green New Deal to environmental justice and sustainable development.

This event will feature questions from community members that will guide a moderated discussion. Temple’s student body will have an opportunity to submit questions in advance for our town hall members.
