Center Director Speaks About a Fossil-free Economy at Milwaukee Public Library, March 8, 2022

“Prosperity in the fossil-free economy: A conversation with Melissa K. Scanlan” will take place March 8 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. This is a virtual event.
Drawing on both her extensive experience founding and directing social enterprises and her interviews with sustainability leaders, Melissa Scanlan provides a legal blueprint for creating alternate corporate business models that mitigate climate change, pay living wages, and act as responsible community members, including Certified B Corps and benefit corporations. With an emphasis on cooperatives, this book reveals the power and potential of cooperating as a unifying concept around which to design social enterprise achieving triple bottom-line results: for society, the environment, and finance.
Presented with support from Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee and UWM Center for Water Policy.
