Join us for an interdisciplinary panel of Harvard Radcliffe Institute fellows—experts in environmental law, policy, and planning—who will explore how collaboration among researchers and policymakers can raise ambitions for climate action and climate justice while effecting change. The speakers will share perspectives from their particular areas of expertise on how best to raise our collective ambitions for a just climate future.

This event is offered as part of Harvard Climate Action Week (HCAW)—a series of events that bring climate experts, leaders, and stakeholders together to explore solutions to the most complex and challenging dimensions of the climate crisis. Events, in-person and online, will dive deep into the policies, private actions, and leadership needed to drive further reductions in US greenhouse gas emissions. HCAW is hosted by the Climate Action Accelerator at the Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability at Harvard University.

Harvard Radcliffe Institute gratefully acknowledges the Ethel and David Jackson Fund for the Future Climate, which is supporting this event.
