Week One Theme :: Climate Change: Prioritizing Our Global and Local Response

Saturday, June 27, 2020

How we talk about climate change is rapidly shifting. But amid the ongoing political debates, how are we — and should we be — responding?

  • What does prioritizing a response to climate change mean, and how do we collectively determine the overall benefits and costs of such investments?
  • How do we balance proactive work aimed at reversing climate change with strategies for adapting to the realities of its worst effects?
  • We examine case studies of solutions being sought at a global and local scale, from the work of small U.S. towns to foreign countries, and from corporate investments to military strategies.
