SEE EVENT DETAILS

A reception for the audience and speakers will follow.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will release its fifth major assessment report in 02014.

The speakers and panelists are:

Susan Burns, Senior Vice President, Global Footprint Network
Saul Griffith, Inventor, Co-founder Otherlab
Paul Hawken, Environmentalist, entrepreneur, journalist, author, professor
Gian-Kasper Plattner, Director of Science, IPCC WGI Technical Support Unit, University of Bern, Switzerland
