As we emerge from the pandemic into the reality of climate disruption, it is clear that restarting the economy cannot mean a return to the status quo. Instead, leaders in government and policy, NGO’s, universities, the private sector, and grassroots coalitions have a pronounced opportunity to rethink how we live. Domestically and internationally, justice will be at the center of investments in the recovery, and this conference will investigate theories of change in energy and food justice. How do we get from the problems we diagnose to the solutions? How do those solutions address the real economic and physical challenges while keeping justice at the center? Panelists will include scholars, practitioners, and activists at the forefront of building capacity for a just response. These interdisciplinary experts will consider the tasks necessary to advance food and energy justice in the face of climate disruption. The conference, supported by The Graciela Chichilnisky Environmental Fund in Honor of Natasha Chichilnisky-Heal, will be hosted in a hybrid format at the Yale School of the Environment and via Zoom and include interactive opportunities to engage the speakers and conference network.

      Climate Change Conversations is a climate-focused lecture series brought to you by Harvard Alumni Travels and Yale Alumni Academy featuring expert faculty and researchers in the field.

      For many people, climate change is felt most directly through water. In some places, water scarcity is becoming commonplace while in others flooding threatens to destroy communities. The concerns go well beyond drought and flood. The webinar will explore the consequences of changed timing of precipitation and how it falls (as rain rather than snow). The questions we face could not be more critical: In times of drought, how will we allocate water between farms and cities? When the water runs out, how do we decide who gets to drink? And what technological and governance fixes are necessary to ensure sustainable access to water in the decades to come?

Join Dr. Margaret Clark for a conversation about just how much young people want to belong, how they strive to belong and what really makes people feel that they belong. false

      Climate Change Conversations is a climate-focused lecture series brought to you by Harvard Alumni Travels and Yale Alumni Academy featuring expert faculty and researchers in the field.

      Historic pandemics and the ongoing COVID-19 crisis emphasize the biomedical threats caused by virus evolution, and the need to better predict when and how viruses are driven to emerge on new host species such as humans. Global climate change affects whether or not biological populations will thrive under new environmental challenges. It is reasonable to expect that some infectious disease pathogens will adapt to changing environmental conditions and potentially increase in prevalence, whereas others will suffer negative effects that lead to geographic range contractions and even local extinctions. This webinar examines current and future effects of climate fluctuations and their potential impacts on parasites and pathogens. In particular, we will explore the influence of climate change on virus evolution, and the probability that human populations will encounter greater or fewer emerging virus pathogens in the near future.

      The Yale University Archives, in collaboration with the Yale Alumni Association, are pleased to announce a pair of lectures for the fall semester on the exhibit, “We thought of ourselves as architects”: Coeducation at the Yale Campus, 1968-1973. 

      Hosted by co-curators Michael Lotstein, university archivist, and Charlotte Keathley, Class of 2022 (Ezra Stiles College), the lectures will delve into the history of coeducation in Yale College through the lens of the buildings and physical spaces of the Yale campus, which were an integral part of this important period in Yale history. 

      The lectures will be offered on Zoom and scheduled for Thursday, October 14, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., and Wednesday, November 17, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. RSVPs are not required to attend. 

      Please send any questions to the University Archives at archives@yale.edu. Links and further information coming soon!
