The Climate Policy Problem · Climate Action Symposia Series

Tuesday, October 29, 2019 - 16:00

During the 2019-20 academic year, MIT will host six symposia to examine the urgent challenge of climate change. This series will draw upon our work to date on the October 2015 MIT Plan for Action on Climate Change as we consider the current state of knowledge on key aspects of this global problem. These discussions will also provide an important opportunity for engagement among members of the MIT community, other leading researchers, industry leaders, and policy makers to explore options for facilitating the necessary transition to a low-carbon economy.

To advance our community’s understanding and expand our capacity to generate solutions for the urgent global challenge of climate change, MIT President L. Rafael Reif and the Climate Symposia Organizing Committee are pleased to invite the MIT community to the 2019-2020 Climate Action Symposia Series. These six symposia will examine the current state of climate science and policy, as well as pathways for decarbonization of the global economy. We will also look at how universities can and should contribute solutions, including MIT’s efforts under our Plan for Action on Climate Change.

The Climate Policy Problem is the second symposium.
