Beyond the Brink: Addressing Human Health and Security in a Changing Climate
February 11, 2011 @ 8:30 am - January 11, 2014 @ 5:00 pm
Hosted by DGHI and the Student International Discussion Group, this symposium will examine the impacts, implications, and adaptations related to global climate change. Leaders in the field will explore questions such as:
- What physical changes are occurring due to the changing climate?
- What do those changes mean for human well-being?
- How can we adapt to the effects on human well-being
The morning will consist of a keynote address and the first panel about physical impacts of climate change. The afternoon will consist of the second panel concerning adaptation strategies and a participant discussion.
This event is co-sponsored by the Duke Human Rights Center, Duke Global Health Institute, and the Nicholas School for the Environment.
