Just days before February's New Hampshire presidential primary, students from the Tuck School of Business and neighboring colleges and high schools had the chance to ask the presidential candidates about their clean energy and environmental policies at a town hall meeting in Concord, N.H.

At the Feb. 5 event, co-hosted by groups including Tuck's Revers Center for Energy and Center for Business, Government and Society, students from across the state questioned Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Deval Patrick, Tom Steyer, Bill Weld, and Andrew Yang, and as well as representatives of Bernie Sanders' and Elizabeth Warren's campaigns.

The candidates agreed that climate change is a pressing issue and needs to be addressed. Fossil fuels, renewables, carbon taxes, safe drinking water, and the Paris climate accord were a few of the topics covered by the candidates, which was attended by voting-age youth from a number of schools including Hanover High School, Keene State College, Philips Exeter Academy, Tuck, and other Dartmouth students.
