Both workshop days are open to the public and will include time for questions and plenary discussions. In the morning on Day 2 participants will have the opportunity to present projects or issues (announced during registration) for inclusion in the discussion. In the afternoon on Day 2 a panel discussion - Carbon Tax Now! (and if not, why?) - will look at the larger picture of finally implementing a carbon tax.
