E2Tech 2015 Annual Meeting & Forum: Risky Business: Floods, Fatalities, and Fear

 

7:15 – 8:00 a.m. – Networking Breakfast

8:00 – 8:15 a.m. – Annual Meeting

8:15 – 10:00 a.m. – Panel Discussion

How do we address risk in our society? What role should the precautionary principle have in regulatory proceedings? What are the greatest threats to Maine?

E2Tech is hosting a facilitated discussion on risk factors - from climate change to automobile accidents to bisphenol A in baby bottles. Panelists will elevate the conversation beyond advocacy talking points and share their thoughts on the relative risk of perceived threats to the environment, human health, and the economy.

We'll also look to the audience to rank risks and threats and achieve consensus on a "Top 10" for Maine.
