Description of the workshop:

Leadership in a Changing Climate: Understanding the Science and Opportunities of Climate Change at Cornell

How can you take a leadership role in creating a sustainable future, while advancing your career and using your unique skills? This session will provide an overview of the causes of climate change, how it is altering the world around us, and how you as a Cornell staff member can be a part of creating solutions. It is getting warmer, we are observing more severe weather, precipitation patterns are shifting, and glaciers are melting worldwide. These changes have profound implications for all of us but especially those who grow our food - agriculture is no longer business as usual. Examples of what Cornell is doing to address climate change will be shared along with what we can all do in our workplace and beyond.
