Rutgers Climate Symposium 2018

 Almost 200 students, post-docs, faculty and staff from academic institutions in our region participated in Rutgers Climate Symposium on November 14, 2018 in which the theme was Climate Change and Food Security. Participants were treated to an inspiring keynote by Alessandro DePinto, of the International Food Policy Research Institute. A plenary panel included Pinki Mondal (Geospatial Scientist at the University of Delaware), Malin Pinsky (Associate Professor at Rutgers University), Rachel Bezner-Kerr (Associate Professor in Development Sociology at Cornell University), Kevon Rhiney (Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at Rutgers University).

Posters were presented by researchers from not only Rutgers but institutions across the region. The event provided an excellent opportunity to foster collaboration on climate change scholarship in our region.
