Climate, Biodiversity, Pandemics, and Justice: Converging Reasons for Alarm?

Date: September 23, 2020

This year has brought increasingly troubling signs of ecosystem decline. How worried should we be? What do we need to know? How will climate change further fuel these disruptions, if left unaddressed?

Join Harvard faculty, students, and fellow alumni for a cross-disciplinary conversation about what’s happening in the field, and what outcomes we should expect based on the choices we make now.
