Confronting the Climate & Ecological Crises with Intention: What Path to Genuine Policy Solutions?

With an accelerating climate and ecological crisis, floods, fires, extinctions, and heat domes are the new normal. In this talk, Dr. Chan will address what we know about the causes of the climate and ecological crises, why 132 of the world's nations concluded that transformative system change was the only desirable way forward, and what law and policy reform might achieve that. But science doesn't dictate policy, which is where we come in as concerned citizens. He'll review what we know about how deep social change happens, and what the science says about how individuals can spark change.

About our speaker:

Dr. Chan is an interdisciplinary, problem-oriented sustainability scientist, trained in ecology, policy, and ethics from Princeton and Stanford Universities. He strives to understand how social-ecological systems can be transformed to be both better and wilder.
