The CLEO Institute’s annual climate symposium invites world-renowned speakers to discuss critical topics related to the climate crisis & what innovative solutions are available to tackle it. Last year’s symposium attracted an international audience of over 500 people, with top-level keynotes like Dr. Sumitra Khatri from The American Lung Association, acclaimed climate scientist Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, Stanford University’s Dr. Mark Z. Jacobson, and more. Our symposium offered attendees the most up-to-date data on climate & health-related issues, with a focus on solutions, and become more civically engaged. In addition, we emphasized climate justice to help people understand the impacts on our most vulnerable communities. Our premier sponsor last year was the British Consulate-General.
Our March 5th, 2022 Climate Symposium, in partnership with the University of Miami’s Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy, will be even larger and hybrid, with both in-person and virtual sessions, offering physical & virtual exhibitor tables, networking opportunities, & generous signage recognition throughout. The symposium will be opened with a presentation on biodiversity and then go into five climate topics focused on cutting-edge technology & thought-provoking ideas delivered in TED-talk style presentations followed by a discussion and audience Q & A.
Our solutions theme represents the biggest opportunities to tackle the climate crisis. From education, that shores up resilience and equips communities to face the impacts of climate change, to gender parity that can play a key role in how communities adapt in a warming world, to how we produce, what we eat, and discard our food, impact our livelihoods, to how we transition faster to a clean energy economy while we get our cities climate-ready. Our aim is to highlight the most robust pathways to decarbonization to tackle the climate emergency in an intersectional way while showing the additional co-benefits and positive ripple effects these changes can bring to our society.
