Departmental Colloquium: Intersections between Earth Science and a Society-Spanning Response to the Climate Crisis (Jan 13 to Feb 17)
On Thursdays from January 13 to February 17, 2022, the EOAS Climate Emergency Committee is hosting a 6-week colloquium series on Intersections between Earth Science and a Society-Spanning Response to the Climate Crisis.
The goals of this series are to showcase the latest in climate science and climate solutions research, highlight intersections between science and multidisciplinary aspects of the climate crisis, and discuss opportunities and roles for Earth Sciences (and scientists) in the broader context of a society-spanning response to the climate crisis.
The series will consist of talks and panel discussions on topics ranging from the physical climate science at which we excel in EOAS, to intersections between science, social justice, and policy.
Which elements of climate science are perceived as highest priority in the public sphere, and what is the state-of-the-art in those fields?
How do we balance justice and sustainability in mining practices with the incredible primary resource demands of a renewable energy economy?
How is science used, effectively and otherwise, in the development and implementation of climate policy in Canada, and abroad?
To explore these questions and more, come to the Climate Crisis Colloquium Series beginning in the New Year 2022!
