CLIMATE DEBATE TOWN HALLS
Additionally, CNN said it will hold a Democratic "Climate Crisis" presidential town hall on Wednesday, Sept. 4 in New York City. The network is inviting those candidates who meet the Democratic National Committee’s polling threshold for the September primary debate, which requires them to reach 2% or more in four approved polls by Aug. 28.
The climate town hall will follow a similar format to the ones it held earlier this year in Austin, Texas, Manchester, N.H., and Washington, D.C.
MSNBC has announced that it is co-hosting the two-day Climate Forum 2020, to be held at Georgetown University Sept. 19-20. All declared presidential candidates from both parties will be invited to speak to young voters about climate change in the town hall-style forum, co-hosted by The Institute of Politics and Public Service at Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy and Our Daily Planet, an independent environmental news organization.
Throughout the entire debate season, chapters across France will be hosting watch events. Check our Debate Watch Page, the DAF Events Calendar, or the events section of our Facebook page for more information.
