The National Climate Seminar Series

ES&P Professor Jennie Stephens is organizing the National Climate Seminar Series and invites you to attend the remaining sessions…

The National Climate Seminar series is being broadcast live on the Clark Campus on the Wednesdays listed below from 12-1 in Dana Commons Second Floor Lounge throughout this fall semester (see schedule below).   The National Climate Seminar series provides us with an opportunity to hear leading activists, scientists, analysts and political leaders discuss climate and clean energy solutions – following the 30 minute broadcast we’ll have short dialogue sessions to reflect on what we have heard.

NOTE: The speakers listed below will not physically be in Worcester but we will be broadcasting their remarks live on the Clark Campus.  Each of theses events are free and open to the public.

The broadcast and convening of this series at Clark is co-sponsored by the Environmental Science and Policy Program in IDCE and Clark’s Difficult Dialogues Program.   The national series is organized by Bard’s Center for Environmental Policy.     If you are unable to attend the broadcasts at Clark you can also listen to the remarks online at this website
