Global Discovery Series: The Importance of Climate Advocacy and the Paris Agreement
This event is presented by Penn Alumni and is part of the Global Discovery - A Faculty Lecture Series.
Join Penn Professor Michael Weisberg and Perry World House fellow Koko Warner, who also heads the impacts and vulnerability subdivision at the UN Climate Secretariat, for a conversation on the effects and risks of climate change, including the goals of the Paris Agreement and where it stands today. Combatting climate change will take profound change and some effects are already irreversible. Weisberg and Warner will discuss what difficult questions must be addressed in order to maintain equity and stability in our communities, as well as discuss what actions you can take to combat climate change in both your personal actions and in climate advocacy. This webinar is a continuation of the Global Discovery Webinar “The Risks of Climate Change,” and will delve deeper into the topics brought up during the first webinar.
The Global Discovery webinar series is co-sponsored by Penn Alumni Travel and Penn Alumni Education. Explore the world virtually, both far and near, with Penn faculty members and your fellow alumni community. Each live, interactive lecture features Penn professors sharing new and innovative research on a variety of topics. Participants will have the opportunity to ask in-depth questions and are sure to learn something new in each one hour session.
