People and Climate Change – Friday, Feb. 15

Lisa Reyes Mason, assistant professor and director of the College of Social Work PhD program, will present “People and Climate Change” Friday, Feb. 15.

Climate change is not just an environmental problem, but a social one. People contribute unequally to climate change and are unequally (and unjustly) harmed. Solving climate change requires technical solutions, yes; but it also requires social solutions developed from a climate change science that is deeply interdisciplinary, values local perspectives, and seeks to inform action.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, February 15 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac. Passes will be available Friday, but if you would like to receive a permit by US mail in advance of the meeting, please send an email before 10 a.m. Tuesday, February 12 and include your mailing address.
