New Ideas Series-Big Solutions To Big Environmental Problems: Does It Still Take A Village? (Virtual) Thursday, April 1, 2021 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. ET
Humanity’s most pressing environmental challenges link human and natural systems. Climate change, water, pollution, the oceans; how we understand and manage them will determine our future. The ability to view these challenges as opportunities, and how we live sustainably on the Earth, start fundamentally with a clear understanding of their scope, and their true nature.
Please join us for the next New Ideas Series which brings together three Wake Forest professors who are leaders in different fields focused on big problems in the environment, and whose work provides pathways to solutions. The following faculty will present:
Dr. Miles Silman Andrew Sabin Professor of Conservation Biology Panel Moderator
Dr. Sheri Floge Assistant Professor in the Biology Department Topic - Marine viruses: an unseen and overlooked force in global climate regulation.
Dr. Lauren Lowman Assistant Professor in the Engineering Department Topic - Fire. Flood. Drought. Hurricane. Revealing the effects of extreme events on the carbon cycle and us.
Dr. Chu (Alex) Yu Assistant professor in the Economics Department Topic - You can’t manage what you can’t measure: Understanding the uncertainty in climate impact estimation and its surprising effects on how we deal with environmental issues.
