Tulane Climate Action Day is day of interdisciplinary discussions of climate change and approaches to action. The keynote speakers will be Dr. Timmons Roberts, a sociologist from Brown University active politically on climate change and social justice; and Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, Texas Tech University, a climate scientist who has gained a well-deserved reputation nationally speaking to Christian audiences about the need to act on climate change. The day also includes sessions on “Climate Justice: Socio-environmental Change and Collective Responses,” “Living with Water: Tulane’s Place in the Watershed,” “The War on Climate Science: Combatting Misinformation and Attack Politics,” and a session on student responses.
The schedule follows the undergraduate class schedule to facilitate the participation of faculty, students and classes. The event will also feature campus and community partner information tables, a solution-oriented Design Jam, and posters highlighting student climate-related research and action. This one day of action will encourage participants to be active in climate change mitigation and adaptation throughout the year and in their lives in and out of Tulane.
Sponsored by the Phyllis M. Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking, Office of Sustainability, Environmental Studies Program, the ByWater Institute, Center for Public Service, Tulane Green Club, USG Sustainability Committee, School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and the Department of Global Environmental Health Sciences, and the Office of Academic Affairs and Provost.
