Peter Kalmus will speak at Elon University on April 18 at 7:30 pm in McKinnon Hall.

As part of Earth Week events at Elon University, climate scientist and author Peter Kalmus will deliver the keynote address entitled “There’s Probably Nothing More Meaningful Than Acting on Climate” on Tuesday, April 18, in McKinnon Hall inside the Moseley Center at 7:30 p.m.

Peter Kalmus

With the planet heating up and ecosystems dying, it’s hard to think of anything more meaningful than contributing to humanity’s transition into biospheric balance. Kalmus is a climate scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab (speaking on his own behalf) and author of “Being the Change: Live Well and Spark a Climate Revolution.”  During this keynote, Kalmus will discuss how we can engage more effectively in the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced based on his experience as a climate scientist and an activist. Attendees are encouraged to come with questions.

This keynote presentation is free and open to the public. It will be recorded and then made available to anyone with Elon login credentials.
