This Is a Past Event

Join Harvard faculty, students, and fellow alumni for a cross-disciplinary conversation about climate change. Decarbonization, regeneration of natural systems, and improved health and equity are daunting challenges for government and the economy. What are some of the elements of meaningful innovation and reform? Are protests on the outside and mobilization of stakeholders on the inside the yin and yang of change? Are power and narratives shifting from government to private sector, civil society, and local communities? As millions of people around the world are awakened to the crisis, how and where can they participate in making a difference?
