WEBINAR: Global Impact of Climate Change

7 July 2020. Webinar. “The Global Impact of Climate Change”. By Yale International Alliance. This
livestream panel program is part of the Yale International Alliance Virtual Series on Global Citizenship.

Climate change connects us all – the magnitude of its effects on the interdependency between the global environment and human society may jeopardize our survival as a species in the not-too-distant future. And yet efforts to mitigate the looming risk of climate change are often uncoordinated and conflicting, differing from country to country and industry to industry. What does it mean to be a Global Citizen in the face of this reality? 

This panel discussed how we can use interdependence of our own to counter the threat that climate change poses and the role that Global Citizenship can – and should – play in tackling this vital issue.
