From the event description: The health of our climate impacts nearly every aspect of our lives — social, economic, environmental, and technical. As the climate changes, so do the well-being of our global supply chains, urban infrastructures, the spread and emergence of pests and diseases, water supplies, and ecosystems. At Rutgers, we are leading the charge to mitigate the effects of climate change through research, education, and outreach. The School of Engineering’s Dean’s Distinguished Lecture will shed light on the important role that engineers have in tackling the climate change challenge. Join us for an important discussion exploring emerging forms of renewable energy, enabling adaptation of our built infrastructure and societies, and improving the human experience.
