Climate Change Heats Up: Public Lecture and Discussion with Dr. Hong Yang

2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Event Status
As Scheduled
Dr. Hong Yang, Bryant University, Charles J. Smiley Chair Professor of Biological & Biomedical Sciences

Global climate change is looming as a long-lasting, all-dimensional issue of the century with far reaching impacts. Despite the increasing interests and rhetoric, higher education is poorly prepared to keep pace with the rapidly changing climate. Global studies can and should play a leading role to prepare students whose lives will be increasingly impacted by the climate crisis. As an Earth scientist, international education administrator, and a current Harvard Radcliffe Fellow, Dr. Hong Yang explores the linkage between climate change and global education by drawing his expertise, experience, and recent interviews with climate change education experts. He examines key questions such as: How do current US-China relations impact climate change collaborations? What kind of intellectual competence should a college graduate acquire about climate change? What can international educators do to move climate change to the center of global studies?
Dr. Hong Yang is the Charles J. Smiley Chair Professor of Biological and Biomedical Sciences and the Inaugural Vice President in charge of campus internationalization at Bryant University. He is also a current Radcliffe Institute Fellow at Harvard University.
