    Penn State will host the satellite location of the NCSE Energy and Climate Change Conference and Global Forum on Science, Policy and the Environment. The main conference will take place in Washington D.C. Jan. 27-29. This year, the NCSE has offered member campuses the chance to be satellite locations for this popular and important gathering. This is a novel approach to engaging campuses in the conference, and 2015 is the first year such a format has been used. For more information, visit -

    The keynotes and plenaries will be webcast live, or can be re-played online the day after the event at any time.
