Free Climate Leaders Virtual Seminar Series: Climate Crisis Through a Foreign Policy Lens

This series is offered by the Gilman program.

 Virtual Seminar Series - Open to Gilman scholars/alumni and all students at U.S. colleges and universities

Current Gilman scholars and Gilman alumni are invited to participate in a virtual seminar series of eight, ninety-minute live virtual seminars from March 24 through May 12, 2022, presented by Duke University’s Energy Initiative and Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and funded through the U.S. Department of State’s Gilman Program. Participants register once for the seminar series and can indicate which of the seminars they plan to attend. Register today! 

The goal of this interdisciplinary, interactive series is to enhance understanding of the climate crisis through a foreign policy lens, including its social, political, and economic impacts, with an eye towards environmental sustainability from the extensive expertise of speakers from Duke and other universities, who share a wide range of professional and academic experience.  Attendees will also be provided with tools and resources to advocate for more sustainable practices and policies within their local communities.  There is no fee to attend these seminars and participants may attend the entire series or individual events.  Events will also be recorded and shared with registrants.
