PPU DEBATE - Would the Green New Deal Be a Bad Deal for America?

Tuesday, October 26, 2021 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Bodek Lounge, Houston Hall (3417 Spruce Street)
Please register here.

Join the five caucuses of the Penn Political Union (PPU) for a debate on the resolution, "Implementing a Green New Deal in the United States Would Be a Mistake."

The PPU is unique among debating societies in encouraging participants to make heartfelt cases for policies they believe in to a politically diverse group of fellow students. Members can join one of five caucuses that span the political spectrum: Progressive, Liberal, Centrist, Conservative, and Libertarian. They can then take active roles in formal debates on important policy problems. At a time of political polarization and social-media bubbles, it is an opportunity to hone and challenge one’s own opinions, as well as make friendships “across the aisle” and cultivate the practices of civil discourse.

All attendees will be required to wear masks.
