A Prof & a Pint: Preserving Research Data in the Trump Administration

Description: 

In her August Prof & a Pint talk, Professor Dillon will discuss EDGI’s work and lay out ongoing concerns regarding the hollowing out of our environmental agencies, especially the EPA. She’ll also discuss further action steps to protect our environmental future, including the concept of “environmental data justice.”

Professor Lindsey Dillon passionately promotes just and effective environmental policies. Concerned after the recent presidential election that the incoming administration would reverse environmental policies and research that monitors environmental problems, she helped found the Environmental Data and Governance Initiative, or EDGI (pronounced "edgy") in November 2016. EDGI responds to currents threats to federal environmental agencies and policy, including the collection and management of environmental and climate data.
