STEM in the World: How STEM Will Save the Planet

Tuesday, April 20, 2021

Climate change represents the greatest existential challenge to humanity in its entire history. In order to mitigate the impacts of climate change, STEM skills across many sectors of the workforce and the general public will be critical to ensure success. In conjunction with Earth Week, STEMconnector will host a webinar focusing on this critical challenge with some of its innovative partners. The program will focus on four areas of this issue:

  • Innovation to do more with less
  • Behavior changes across global populations to use less
  • Mitigate the inevitable climate fallouts that are already in motion
  • Ensure that social justice is at the forefront of this work as marginalized populations are disproportionately vulnerable to the impact of climate change

Featured Speakers Include

  • Dr. Ronda Hamm Ph.D., Global Academic Relations, Corteva Agriscience
  • Tiffany G. Troxler, Ph.D. Associate Professor, Department of Earth and Environment & Director of Science, Sea Level Solutions Center, Institute of Environment, an FIU Preeminent Program, Florida International University
  • Dr. Suzanne Simons, Senior Director, Content and Curriculum Innovation, National Geographic Society
  • Christiane Maertens, Founder, DoGoodery (Moderator)
