Hosted by UNC Institute for the Environment and the UNC Center for Law, Environment, Adaptation and Resources (CLEAR), EarthJustice president Trip Van Noppen will talk about affecting major change in federal environmental policy, the complex politics that are involved in affecting change, and how one person who wants to make a real difference can truly do so.
Van Noppen leads the EarthJustice staff, board and supporters to advance its mission of using the courts to protect our environment and people's health. He is a Carolina Law alum and a former board member of the Institute for the Environment. Before his time with EarthJustice, Van Noppen worked in a litigation practice emphasizing civil rights, employment, environmental and toxic tort cases and directed the Southern Environmental Law Center’s Carolinas Office.
EarthJustice is a non-profit public interest law organization dedicated to protecting the magnificent places, natural resources, and wildlife of this earth, and to defending the right of all people to a healthy environment.
