Get a glimpse into the innovative and impactful research taking place at Penn Arts & Sciences at the Penn Science and Lightbulb Cafés. The lecture series is free and open to the public and takes place in Center City at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre.
In October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change announced that limiting global warming to 1.5°C—necessary to avoid the worst consequences of climate change—would require rapid, far-reaching, and unprecedented change in all aspects of society. For Earth Day, a panel of Penn Arts & Sciences faculty will discuss the causes and wide-ranging consequences of global warming, call for large-scale climate action, and share a vision of constructive and comprehensive response.
