Responses to Climate Change: Critical Conversations

February 25, 2020 at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Scientists and experts no longer debate whether or not our #climate is changing. The questions now are: What can we do about it? What is keeping solutions from gaining traction?

Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership‘s 2020 CRITICAL CONVERSATIONS event explores solutions to #climatechange with an illustrious panel of #climate experts and activists, moderated by New York Magazine columnist David Wallace-Wells, author of The New York Times #1 bestseller “The Uninhabitable Earth.”

The panelists all work on the frontlines. Kevin Green is head of the Center for Behavior & the Environment and Vice President of Rare, a global leader in using behavior change to achieve conservation results. Mirele B. Goldsmith is an environmental psychologist and activist who is a founder of the Jewish Earth Alliance. Karenna Gore is the director and founder of the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary. Bill McKibben is founder of the international environmental organization 350.org. His 1989 book #TheEndofNature is cited as the first book on #globalwarming. Katherine Milkman is a behavioral economist at The Wharton School, working on behavior change as it relates to climate.

Tickets start at $20. All tickets include pre-program drinks and appetizers 5:00-6:15 pm.

VIP tickets ($100) include pre-program event, VIP seating, and post-program reception with the speakers.

The Critical Conversations series is generously funded by the late Eric Joss.
