The climate crisis will require many different types of solutions across all aspects of life. We need to consider and discuss all of the options on the table, from social justice and economic norms to advanced technologies and climate engineering. This panel will offer opinions from some of the leading thinkers in these areas: where should we focus our efforts, and what are the prospects for accelerating progress over the coming decades? 

How can you participate? Attend in person (note, we can accommodate up to 30 audience members comfortably in the space) or online by registering for the Zoom webinar or watching live on YouTube.
