Earth Day: Who Pays for Climate Change?

, Virtual Meeting Room

Updated 4/8

Although climate change poses an existential threat to the planet and everyone who lives here, mitigation and adaptation attempts are often presented, politically, as a threat to economic development and prosperity. The way forward requires taking a broader view encompassing not just continued economic growth for nations and corporations, but also equity for the most vulnerable. Our Earth Day panel will discuss how to join economic development and innovation to positive climate action in ways that benefit us all. SIS professor Claire Brunel will moderate the conversation, and an audience Q&A will follow the discussion.

Speakers include: 

-Andreas Karelas, Founder and Executive Director, RE-volv
-Irina Markina, Non-resident Senior Fellow, Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, and Corporate Sustainability Manager, Baker Hughes
-Priya Shyamsundar, Lead Economist, The Nature Conservancy
