Time: 7:00PM to 8:30PM Eastern

THIS WILL BE A SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION about the ways that climate solutions interact with social justice concerns. Broadly, how do we balance the urgency of climate action with social equity? Is it desirable to prioritize climate action above other global sustainability goals? What's the role of policy and market incentives? Who decides? What part can we play?
CALLIE HANCOCK, AB '77, Founder, Princeton NJ Chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby, and BOB ENG, EdD '94, Host of TEDx Countdown, will co-moderate this event. Registration will be limited to encourage discussion. To set a common “starting line,” Callie and Bob suggest that you read/watch the following items:
- Video (9 min): David Lammy, UK Parliament, “Climate justice can’t happen without racial justice”:
- Video (8 min): Rebecca Henderson, Harvard Business School, “To save the climate, we have to re-imagine capitalism”:
- News story (1 min): “N.J. Gov. Murphy signs environmental justice law designed to protect minority communities”:
