Join us for a month-long series of panel discussions and presentations focused on how we can take better care of our planet. Speakers from the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences reflect on environmental issues of immediate and long-term concern, explore interdisciplinary connections, model diverse approaches to the climate crisis and the urgent challenges it poses to our civilizations, especially the most vulnerable, and share ideas on how we can adapt to the changes in an increasingly turbulent world.
