As we begin this critical decade for climate action with growing momentum for protecting and restoring our global commons, the intensity of this moment makes it a uniquely compelling and privileged time to be alive. How we achieve a sustainable well-being for everyone everywhere on a thriving planet and protect the most vulnerable from the worst impacts of climate change will be the most defining chapter in the story of our species -- one we can only write together. As we stand at this turning point, our responsibility is clear. The future we choose lies in the hands of each of us alive today.

This event is co-hosted by HSPH’s Center for Climate, Health and the Global Environment (C-CHANGE), the Institute of Politics at HKS, JFK Jr. Forum, and The Forum at Harvard Chan School.
