Universities for a Greener Georgia Conference

APRIL 8, 2018

The second annual Universities for a Greener Georgia Conference will provide a space for students and faculty members from universities across Georgia to collaborate on strategies to address climate change through three main channels: research, education, and community/campus engagement with environmental issues. We are excited to host renowned climate researchers from across the country for a day full of informational workshops, panels, and research presentations! The theme of this year’s conference is climate communication and public perception of climate change.

The conference will focus on the following goals:

  • providing a forum for faculty and students to present climate-related research
  • strengthening the connection between students and faculty members working in the environmental science and policy field
  • fostering dialogue between different Georgia universities about how best to collectively address local environmental issues

The conference will feature a workshop on climate communication with Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Program on Climate Communication and senior researcher at the Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. The workshop will begin at 6 pm.

Date: Monday, 4/8/2019 (10am- 8pm)
Location: Emory University, Candler School of Theology, Room 252
Dinner will be provided to all participants if they register for the climate communications workshop!

Any questions should be directed to Dr. Eri Saikawa (eri [dot] saikawa [at] emory [dot] edu) or Zola Berger-Schmitz (zola [dot] berger-schmitz [at] emory [dot] edu)
