ABOUT THE EVENT
Less than two weeks before COP27, the UN Environment Programme released a report claiming there is no “credible path” to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Average global temperatures are currently set to increase between 2.1°C to 2.9°C, given countries’ current policies and pledges. This past summer, the U.S. and China suffered from extreme climate change-related disasters, including record-breaking droughts, floods, and wildfires. How are civil society actors responding to these crises by driving innovation and policy changes to chart a path towards a more sustainable future? Join us in a conversation with our guest speaker Clare Auld-Brokish to unpack the developing challenges environmental nonprofits are trying to tackle as well as navigating the sustainability sector as a young professional. Currently a program associate at the U.S. Water Alliance, Auld-Brokish has previously worked for the National Resources Defense Council’s Beijing Office as a Princeton in Asia Fellow and served as a Fulbright Fellow in Yunnan.
This will be a public hybrid event.
The U.S.-China Youth Expositions is an event series hosted by the Onero Institute China Program and the U.S.-China Strategic Studies Organization that seeks to promote youth involvement in international affairs and research about U.S.-China relations.
