The Petri Dish: Where Do We Go From Here

February 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Where Do We Go From Here: The science, policy and politics of addressing and adapting to global-scale environmental change

Everything we do has an impact on the environment. Climate change is top of mind for many, but our carbon dioxide emissions are only the beginning of the story. The ecological outcomes of our activities take myriad forms and have far reaching implications. Add to the mix a new political landscape, and questions of how to mitigate our impact and adapt to the changes in climate, biodiversity, and nutrient availability take on a new urgency. Join us for a wide-ranging discussion about the science, politics and policy driving our complex relationship with our planet’s systems.

Panelists: Elizabeth Borer, Gabriel Chan, Tracy Twine
Moderator: Jessica Hellmann

The Petri Dish explores how biology affects our lives and what it means for our future. No Powerpoints. Just live music, trivia and lots of lively, curiosity-driven conversations on timely topics with University of Minnesota experts.
