Academy Conversation: What role does science play in public policy and social action during Covid-19
Wednesday, May 27, 2020
3:00 PM-4:00 PM
Join us for an Academy Conversation about COVID-19 and the Environment.
The pandemic has highlighted questions in how science is used to guide public policy and social action similar to those raised around climate change. Both COVID-19 and climate change require credible scientific understanding and interpretation; both rely on models to predict the future; both force public decision-making in the face of uncertainty; and both have become politically polarizing. Join us for a free, virtual discussion on Zoom with experts about managing the challenges of science-driven public policy.
