Will MIT rise to the climate challenge?
Join us for a panel discussion to find out what MIT is currently doing about climate change, and to discuss what MIT could be doing in the near future.
Last year, the MIT community participated in the campus-wide Climate Change Conversation, an effort that resulted in a myriad of suggestions on what MIT could to tackle the climate crisis. President Reif is now reviewing the recommendations made in the report of the Conversation Committee, and will announce this fall how (or if) the institute will take action. This event aims to provide context for this much-awaited decision. Will our administration choose to take bold action on this pivotal issue of our generation?
