Due to concerns over the potential for large gatherings to lead to the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, MIT is postponing the remaining two Climate Action Symposia. The symposia will be rescheduled; the new dates will be announced on this page once they have been determined. We appreciate your interest in the symposia and look forward to seeing you at the events when they take place. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
During the 2019-20 academic year, MIT will host six symposia to examine the urgent challenge of climate change. This series will draw upon our work to date on the October 2015 MIT Plan for Action on Climate Change as we consider the current state of knowledge on key aspects of this global problem. These discussions will also provide an important opportunity for engagement among members of the MIT community, other leading researchers, industry leaders, and policy makers to explore options for facilitating the necessary transition to a low-carbon economy.
