"Confronting Climate Change: Diverse Perspectives on the Path Forward"

Thursday, March 25, 2021: 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Read the Harvard Gazette write-up, "Finding a Way Forward on Climate Change."

Climate change is modifying weather patterns, raising sea levels, disrupting ecosystems, and threatening human health. To reduce the impacts of climate change and to manage the impacts that are unavoidable, profound changes in the world's energy systems are required. These changes will affect nearly every aspect of our daily life. From the different perspectives of science, policy, health and business, the panelists will share their perspectives on the way forward.
