About this event
Barriers to Public Acceptance of Climate Science, Impacts, and Solutions
The College of Social and Behavioral Science is proud to celebrate 50 years of inspiring human solutions to the grand challenges facing our world. No challenge is perhaps more pressing than the growing polarization in our society’s discourse around many social and environmental issues. From climate change to childcare, income inequality to race relations, gender inequality to mental health, our collective ability to discuss contentious issues is crucial to the development of impactful solutions.
To celebrate our college’s 50th-anniversary milestone, we’re delighted to welcome our keynote speaker, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe. Dr. Hayhoe currently serves as the Chief Scientist for The Nature Conservancy, and was recently recognized as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People. Her recent book, Saving Us: A climate scientist’s case for hope and healing in a divided world, provides a roadmap for meaningful dialogue around climate change; lessons that extend to divisions found in many pressing social and environmental issues, offering hope for future progress. Join us for this special event!
