Blue Skies & Beyond: Limiting Warming To 1.5 Degrees? Can We Bridge The Gap?

No dates for this event

Join us March 4 for the Blue Skies and Beyond Hot Topics in STEM Discussion Series:

  • What does the Paris Agreement require countries to do?
  • Can we reach a goal to limit warming to 1.5 degrees?
  • What do our current global emission and production trajectories show us?
  • What commitments have countries such as the United States, China and India made?

Beth Martin, Interim Director of the Climate Change program, Senior Lecturer in Environmental Studies at Washington University in St. Louis, will explore these questions with us and discuss what to expect as countries develop and submit their next round of international commitments that are due this year. Martin serves as the co-focal point for the research constituency to the UN Climate Change negotiations.

She teaches a seminar on the international climate negotiations and travels with a delegation of students to the meetings each year.
There will be an opportunity to provide feedback to Martin and the Climate Change Program as they begin to frame out ways to support high school teachers across curriculum – sciences, social studies, ELA – interested in integrating climate change into their classes.
FREE and OPEN to all. Middle and high school teachers are encouraged to attend.
