Dr. Edward Cameron, a global climate change specialist, will look beyond the term “climate change” and explore everyone’s role in building a more sustainable world by outlining what an environmentally conscious and inclusive economy can look like on the regional, national and global levels in his talk “Vision 2020: Building a Low-Carbon, Climate Resilient and Inclusive World” on Monday, April 1, at 5:30 p.m. in Clements Hall in the Curtis L. Ivey Science Center.
Cameron will present key points from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change special report, which details the impacts of global warming on natural and human systems and sustainable development. There will be ample time for questions and comments.
“We are honored to host this important discussion at Colby-Sawyer and look forward to Dr. Cameron’s perspectives on ways that we, as individuals and as a community, can begin to turn the tide,” Assistant Professor of Natural & Environmental Sciences and Director of Sustainability and Innovation Jen White ’90 said.
This event is free and open to the public. It is co-sponsored by Colby-Sawyer College, the New Hampshire League of Conservation Voters, Kearsarge Climate Action, Andover Energy Group, New London Energy Committee and the New Hampshire Sierra Club.
Over the past 22 years, Cameron has worked with governments around the world, designed climate leadership plans and developed engagement strategies for nonprofit organizations. The European Union, the Maldives, the World Bank and the World Resources Institute strengthened their environmental policies thanks to his assistance. Most recently, he served as policy engagement director for We Mean Business, a worldwide coalition shaping private sector advocacy in the design of the landmark Paris Agreement.
