Date and Time: July 9, 7:30 PM ET
Sponsored by MIT Alumni for Climate Action
In this workshop, strategies with the highest leverage in addressing the climate change crisis will be explored. The impact of various solutions will be tested, including reducing the use of coal, oil, and gas for energy, increasing the impact of renewable energy resources, increasing the energy efficiency of transportation and infrastructure, electrifying transportation, reducing emissions from land use, and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and others using the En-ROADS decision support model. The co-benefits and equity considerations of these various solutions will also be explored. This will be an interactive workshop, and participants are invited to bring ideas from their communities for addressing climate change. What would be the impact if the entire world did the same? A wide range of strategies will be discusses to address what suite of worldwide actions which would help limit the increase of temperature to no more than 2 °C by 2100.
