Call for Presenters: UW Climate Research Forum

Posted: 9/16/2018 (Local Events)

The Population Health Initiative, Urban@UW, the Graduate School and the Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship will be hosting a networking event for graduate students and postdocs from all schools and colleges across the UW who are engaged in scholarship around climate change.

The event will feature lightning presentations from 5-7 students/postdocs on a specific area of climate research.

We are seeking student/postdoc volunteers from diverse disciplines to present their work at this forum, and would like your help in identifying a few presenters. The presentations will be informal and there will be no need for extensive preparation. Presenters will be asked to either talk about a successful collaborative project related to climate change, or about how their own work might benefit from collaborations with different disciplines.

Examples of areas we would like to see represented include climate policy and politics, health implications of climate change, engineering or technology solutions, entrepreneurial approaches to climate change, climate justice and equity, built environment responses to climate change, communicating climate research, and others.

Date: 11/16/2018
