The Global Lab, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, the Social Justice Series, the Office of Sustainability, Environmental & Sustainability Studies and other partners are hosting a Climate Summit event that will take place on Wednesday, April 3 from 1:00 - 4:00pm in the Foisie Innovation Studio, 2nd floor. This 'takeover' event will be part serious discussion, part demonstrations that may offer hope for climate change mitigation, and part 'open house' to socialize and engage with others in the community who are working on this critical topic. We invite participation from all in the community who have an interest in climate change or who have research, teaching or other projects that address any dimension of climate change.
The goals of the summit are to bring attention to the breadth of climate change related scholarship, innovation, teaching and praxis that is happening within the WPI community and to catalyze discussion about how WPI can address this critical global challenge going forward. The event will feature lightening talks, demonstrations, project posters, and panel discussions and it is an inclusive event that welcomes faculty, students and staff to participate.
