Metcalf Institute’s 24th Annual Public Lecture Series

Event Date: 
June 14, 2021 to June 18, 2021

Climate change is already having starkly disproportionate impacts on low-wealth communities and communities of color around the world. These inequities have led many communities to develop innovative solutions in partnership with researchers, government agencies, non-profits, and the private sector.

Metcalf Institute’s 24th Annual Public Lecture Series, June 14-18, 2021, will highlight community-focused research, journalism, and collaborations that are pointing the way toward a just and equitable future.

The Annual Public Lecture Series will be held virtually and all talks will be held from 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET.
