The March 11 Myra Kraft Open Classroom public lecture will not be held, in accordance with Northeastern University’s updated event policy covering large gatherings, as well as Governor Baker’s State of Emergency declaration.
More information about our remaining sessions (March 18, March 25, April 1 and April 8) will be forthcoming. We will still populate our Climate Resources webpage with helpful links as they become available. Additionally, we intend to continue this crucial conversation no matter the channel, both now and in the future. Thank you for your continued support of the Myra Kraft Open Classroom.
This spring’s Myra Kraft Open Classroom series is intended to promote climate change education, resilience, and action. We will examine the basic science of climate change, its local and global impacts on the natural world, the built environment, and humankind, and strategies for preventing its worst outcomes while preparing for those we can no longer avoid. Our panels will include faculty experts, community practitioners, and youth leaders. Throughout the course, we will center the experiences of vulnerable communities already threatened by climate change and issues related to the ethical and equitable distribution of resources to address it.
