MIT Climate Action Symposia: Challenges of Climate Policy

The second of six symposia hosted by MIT will address societal impacts and policy challenges of climate change; adaptations that could limit economic damages and national security risks; and potential solutions to overcome domestic and international political hurdles for addressing climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Climate Action Symposia series aims to advance our community’s understanding and expand our capacity to generate solutions for the urgent global challenge of climate change. Over the 2019-2020 academic year, the six symposia 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.
