Rutgers Climate Symposium 2019

More than 200 students, post-docs, faculty and staff from academic institutions in our region participated in Rutgers Climate Symposium 2018 in which the theme was Science and Society: Perspectives On A Green New Deal. Participants were treated to an inspiring keynote by Naomi Klein, an award-winning journalist and Gloria Steinem Chair for Media, Culture, and Feminist Studies at Rutgers University. A plenary panel included Daniel Aldana Cohen (University of Pennsylvania), Ayana Elizabeth Johnson (Ocean Collectiv), Neil Maher (New Jersey Institute of Technology), and J. Marshall Shepherd (University of Georgia).

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.
