IJC Guest Lecture: Let My Planet Go

Let My Planet Go 

The Future of Climate Policy in an Unpredictable World 

May 8 at 5pm
on IJC Zoom

For our last lecture of the season, we turn to international climate policy. It's been more than six years since the Paris Climate Agreement was signed. It is seen by many to be an (if not the most) important framework for national and international climate policy. But how has it fared? What are the prospects for its future success? And where does it fit into the broader effort to improve our environment? Dr. David Kanter will share his thoughts on the past, present and future of national and international climate policy. 

David is an Associate Professor of Environmental Studies at New York University and Vice-Chair of the International Nitrogen Initiative. His research examines new policy options for addressing nutrient pollution and how to manage the transition to a global agri-food system consistent with the Sustainable Development Goals. 
Prior to his current position, David was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at The Earth Institute at Columbia University. He received his BSc in Chemistry and Law from the University of Bristol in the UK and his MA and PhD in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy from Princeton University. 
David was born and raised in Brussels, son of Diana and Benny. He was BarMitzvah at Beth Hillel in 2000 and stays up to date with IJC news through his parents!
