Climate Justice: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow with Dr. Michel Gelobter P’24

Virtual Online

Open to the public

/ Friday


Join Dr. Michel Gelobter P’24 for a discussion on the history of climate justice as both a concept and a movement, particularly with respect to President Biden’s administration and more comprehensive, youth-led actions. Acknowledging that climate justice is vital to how the climate problem will be shaped over the next 20 to 30 years, Dr. Gelobter will address what that path may look like and highlight some of the key uncertainties of the future. 

Michel Gelobter co-founded the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance and led Redefining Progress, where he worked to design the world’s most aggressive climate legislation, AB32-California's Global Warming Solutions Act. As an academic, Dr. Gelobter was the founding director of the Program on Environmental Policy at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs. He is currently the CEO/Founder of Cooler, Inc., the first consumer-facing climate software company, and Managing Director of Reflective Earth, a non-profit devoted to slowing climate change by increasing the reflection of heat away from the Earth.
