Event Announcement

Thank you for expressing interest in the 24th annual Public Interest Environmental Conference: “Our Climate: The Only Constant is Change.” For over twenty years, the Public Interest Environmental Conference (PIEC) has sought to promote an understanding of the legal aspects of environmental protection, to serve and inform individuals as to the necessity for improvements in environmental legal protection, foster the development of sound environmental legislation, measure the effects of environmental litigation, and to assist other groups involved in environmental education. The conference brings together legal practitioners, academics, policy makers, and private citizens to discuss preeminent issues surrounding a different environmental topic each year. The theme of the 2018 conference is climate change and will examine the challenges, concerns, and future of law, policy, and science related to climate change from a local, regional, and national standpoint.

The 2017 Future of Florida Summit, held from Feb. 10 to Feb. 12 on the University of Florida campus and sponsored by the Bob Graham Center for Public Service, will focus on the upcoming 2017-2018 Florida Constitution Revision Commission. Students from any Florida college or university — public or private — are invited to apply to attend.
 
The Florida Constitution Revision Commission has more influence than most Floridians realize, and many don't even know it exists. Commissioned every 20 years, this group of appointed members will have the power to put constitutional changes directly on the November 2018 ballot. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the revision process and the history of Florida's constitution from the state's leading scholars on the topic and members of past Constitution Revision Commissions.
 
This type of revision process is unique to Florida, providing a once-in-a-generation opportunity to directly influence the contents of Florida's constitution. Invited students will draft constitutional amendments, which will then be submitted to the 2017-2018 Constitution Revision Commission.
 

Food and lodging are provided by the Bob Graham Center for Public Service. However, invited students are expected to arrange travel to and from Gainesville and arrive at Pugh Hall — centrally located on the University of Florida campus — by 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 10.
