When & Where
The Academy of Natural Sciences, Center for Environmental Policy
The goals of the Center for Environmental Policy (CEP) at the Academy of Natural Sciences are to evaluate key issues of environmental policy, facilitate dialogues and decision-making on environmental topics, and inform the public from both an academic as well as a practical perspective. CEP answers the need for a non-partisan, science-based organization that is capable of accessing and guiding a myriad of public and private stakeholders.
