Climate Change, Science & Society: A Multidisciplinary Discussion

This event will explore the topic of climate change from diverse disciplinary perspectives, illustrating that it is not simply a scientific problem, but a social and economic one as well and that the development of solutions is likely to require interdisciplinary partnerships. Speakers will participate in a moderated discussion about how their disciplines must come together to address and illuminate the problem of global climate change.
