Academy Conversation

Wednesday, December 19, 2018

5:30 PM-6:30 PM

Join our free informal discussion on the latest science news that affects our everyday lives.

What happened at the latest United Nations Climate Change Conference?

World leaders met in Poland this month to assess global efforts to combat climate change, and officials from the Academy and Drexel had front-row seats. Join in the discussion with members of the Philly delegation as they recount their observations, especially in light of U.S. efforts to reject recent scientific reports that address this critical issue.
