smithsonian environmental research center

A Smithsonian Environmental Research Center monthly evening lecture. Some of the most powerful solutions to climate change are right at our fingertips. Changing how we manage our land—through methods like sustainable farming, reforestation and restoring wetlands—could save up to a fifth of U.S. carbon emissions each year. That’s more powerful than taking every car in the U.S. off the road. Speakers: Susan Cook-Patton (The Nature Conservancy) and Ariana Sutton-Grier (University of Maryland), two scientists who helped highlight 21 “natural climate solutions” in a recent study from The Nature Conservancy, the Smithsonian and other organizations around the world. Discover how nature can help us conquer climate change, and how these solutions can be win-wins for the environment, business and human health. | Read more about 21 natural climate solutions | Full report in Science Advances
Free and open to all. Held in the Schmidt Conference Center. No RSVP required.
