Alumni College 2021
Warming Signs: Emergency, Adaptation, and Innovation in Climate Change
Thank you to Reed alumni presenters and attendees for making Alumni College 2021 Warming Signs: Emergency, Adaptation, and Innovation in Climate Change a great success! Over 170 alumni attended nine alumni-taught courses and three attendee discussions June 4–6, 2021. In honor of the environmental studies program’s ten-year anniversary, Alumni College 2021 focused on climate change.
Alumni experts from various disciplines and industries led alumni through lectures and workshops, providing an overview of the major areas involved in tackling climate change and their experiences in their fields. From governmental policy to green investments, renewable energy technology to environmental law, climate research to resiliency planning, and wildfire science to oceanography–this event strengthened attendees’ understanding of these complex factors and provided practical examples of how we can collectively mitigate the worst of climate change and adapt to a new reality on the firstname.lastname@example.org, 503/777-7589
