2016 LSSP Symposium
Confronting Climate Change

March 12 and 17-19, 2016

Climate change is one of the key challenges facing the world today, but its implications are far more diverse than many realize. While some still argue about whether climate change is really happening, most scientists agree that it is and are focused on understanding it better and charting a way to lessen its effects. While nations discuss what should be done and who should bear the cost, many countries and cities are moving forward with their own bold initiatives. While some focus on the implications of extreme weather, others ask how climate change will affect our food systems, our social institutions, and our health. While some explore the effects of climate change in data and words, others explore it in photos, poetry, or music.
