The ideological divide in the United States on the subject of climate change has impeded progress in curbing greenhouse emissions. But extreme weather events at both ends of the thermometer have focused attention on the consequences of inaction. What role will the United States play in future negotiations on climate?


Join World Boston for a discussion of this complex topic with Rachel Kyte, Dean of The Fletcher School at Tufts University. The program will feature expert remarks from Dean Kyte, live audience Q&A, and time for networking and discussion with other globally-oriented participants over light refreshments.


This program will happen in-person in the Rabb Lecture Hall of the Boylston Street Building of the Central Library in Copley Square and over Zoom webinar. For in-person attendees, following the main program there will be a reception with refreshments from 7 to 7:30 PM.
