MIT on Climate, Science, and Action
By Cassie Martin
On January 27, leading researchers from across MIT will come together to discuss one of the most pressing issues of our time—climate change. For decades, MIT scientists have been and continue to be at the forefront of climate research. Still, questions remain on how best to use that knowledge to avert, mitigate and adapt to its impacts.
Covering a diverse range of topics including the science, economics, and policy of climate change, the public symposium will also feature keynote speakers Marcia McNutt, Editor-in-Chief of Science, and New York Times environmental journalist Justin Gillis.
Space is limited and registration is required. A livestream of the event will also be available. In the meantime, catch up on recent actions MIT has taken on climate change.
