Columbia Climate School: How It Plans To Make A Difference
The new Climate School brings together many of its world-leading capabilities in climate including researchers and scholars at the Earth Institute, the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and the Center on Global Energy Policy developing education, research, technology and policy hubs strategically linked and focused on the opportunities and needs for climate education, research and solutions.
The mission of the Climate School is to fulfill Columbia's educational mission to educate the next generation of leaders, to undertake research, to generate new knowledge, and most importantly to turn that research into actionable solutions to the climate crisis. This webinar will introduce the Climate School to Columbia University students and to the general public. Three Deans of the Climate School will provide an overview of the Climate School. They will explain the role of the centers that fall under its umbrella, the type of educational activities it performs, and the groundbreaking research it is undertaking. Following that, each Dean will talk about climate issues from their own perspectives, and will share the most relevant concerns from their unique disciplinary points of view.
