Climate Change Solutions Across Scales – from Personal Action to Global Transformation on Six Fronts

August 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

*Climate Change 360 – Virtual Lecture Series*

Register for any/all of the talks on www.eventbrite.com at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/climate-change-360-a-virtual-lecture-series-tickets-161839852355. This event is organized by Lutherans Restoring Creation – Gulf Coast, in partnership with the Interfaith Environmental Network of Houston and Texas Impact/Texas Interfaith Power & Light.  Contact Lisa Brenskelle at gcs.lrc@gmail.com for more information.

Join Dr. Phoebe Barnard to consider action on climate change at different scales. Her talk will focus on turning plans and policies into effective action and management, focusing on the six areas of recommended action in World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency paper (energy, pollutants, nature, food systems, population stabilization, economic reforms), of which she was one of five core coauthors (with 13,800+ scientist cosignatories). Dr. Barnard will highlight which of these are firmly under our personal control at some level, and how – versus those which require us to elect leaders who will institute the needed policies and laws. Or, who will manage the situation of increasing chaos, if we fail to take transformative action in time. Time for interactive discussion will be provided after her talk. Dr. Phoebe Barnard is a global change scientist, public policy wonk, communications strategist and filmmaker with a passion for transformative sustainability change. She is also the Conservation Biology Institute’s Associate Strategist, Affiliate Full Professor at University of Washington, and Research Associate at University of Cape Town.
