This event brings together Exeter alumni in the USA for an evening event during New York Climate Week, which convenes key climate leaders each year to accelerate climate action and is the biggest global climate event of its kind.
You will hear from Exeter’s Professor Gail Whiteman, an expert on global risk arising from the systemic changes occurring in the natural environment, who will be sharing with us her latest research, her actions during New York Climate Week, and what you can do to support Climate Change initiatives. There will be time to pose questions to Gail following her presentation and have a one-to-one conversation during the networking session.
Everyone in the room will have Exeter in common so there will be plenty of time to reconnect with old classmates, reminisce and share memories and to expand your alumni network.
Join us for this imperative talk at a critical time, as we collectively tackle the world’s greatest trials to create a healthier, greener and fairer future for all.
