Join the S-CAR and the Office of Sustainability in panel and round table discussions about climate change! Part of S-CAR’s on-going series, this event will explore distinct perspectives concerning this very important and timely issue.
Dr. Dann Sklarew, Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Policy at Mason, will moderate a panel of experts providing insight on different aspects of this issue.
The panel includes Dr. Gregory Unruh, Arison Professor of Values Leadership at Mason and an expert on sustainable business strategy, Dr. Mona Sarfaty, Director of the Climate and Health Program in Mason’s Center for Climate Change Communication (4C), and Alex Bozmoski, Director of Strategy & Operations at the Energy & Enterprise Initiative (RepublicEN), which seeks free-enterprise solutions to climate change.
Attendees will have a chance to ask questions of these panelists during the Q&A, and then half of the event will be dedicated to audience roundtable discussion facilitated by S-CAR’s Dr. Patricia Maulden, and The Office of Sustainability.
