Governing the climate crisis: How should future leaders prepare?
As the impacts of climate change accelerate, human societies will face a set of cascading, layered, and interrelated challenges. Droughts, sea level rise, and extreme weather and heat will increasingly affect food security, public health, economic development, and conflict. The relatively stable ecological conditions in which human societies have been governed in recent decades cannot be assumed to continue. How should future leaders prepare, and what role can, or must, universities play in that process? This event will survey the macro challenges we increasingly face, and consider how the next generation of leaders can best prepare to navigate them.
