This will be an urgent sharing of ideas and images that just might help save our planet. Join us for a timely public conversation among thought leaders from science, art, and the humanities. Scientific data is essential but thus far insufficient in motivating a concerted response to the climate crisis by our national leaders. What insights can other disciplines such as the visual arts and humanities provide to advance public understanding and motivate effective action in response to the climate crisis before it’s too late?
