On September 27, faculty affiliated with the Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business at Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business (“Center”) participated in the Global Climate Action Symposium. The event brought together scientists, engineers, government delegates, artists, business and policy experts, activists, and students from around the world. It was jointly sponsored by Georgia Tech and six European consulates during European Climate Diplomacy Week, a time for EU delegations and embassies around the world to hold events to encourage communication and action related to climate change.
The event was organized by the Global Change Program, which was launched in 2018. The program’s Director, Kim Cobb, Georgia Power Chair and ADVANCE Professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, told close to 200 attendees (plus 100 people who watched via livestream), “We have an impactful community at our fingertips at Georgia Tech and beyond. I hope this is the first of many such events to build shared dreams together.”
