Webinar: Building Convergence in Climate Science
June 17, 10:30 am to 12:00 pm
Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment (IEE) have announced a community forum on climate research at Penn State titled “Building Convergence in Climate Science.”
The meeting is an effort to build and unify the University’s climate community to help further mitigate the climate crisis.
The meeting will focus on three main pillars:
- Mitigation, including efforts to reduce or prevent the emission of greenhouse gases;
- Resilience, the ability of society to absorb the stresses of climate change or adapt, reorganize and evolve; and
- Impacts, effects of climate change on ecosystems and human societies.
Concurrent breakout sessions will allow meeting participants to focus on pillars they would like to discuss. In each of those breakout sessions, participants will discuss the pillars through the exploration of five key topics: convergent research opportunities, current Penn State assets, barriers to action, recommendations and exemplar success stories.
The meeting will conclude with a report out from each session.
