CLEANR strives to create programs and other educational opportunities through which to disseminate information and facilitate dialogue about environmental issues. The intent of CLEANR's roundtables is to help build advocacy networks among academics, students, activists and policy makers that will play a leading role in framing debates, developing solutions and challenging existing policies and practices where they fall short in protecting the environment.
