The Science and the Policies Behind the Climate Crisis and What We Can Do About It

Climate scientist and activist Dr. Shaina Sadai will share the latest science and discuss policy work to reckon with the climate crisis. As an UMass alum and current Hitz Fellow for Litigation-Relevant Science at the Union of Concerned Scientists, Dr. Sadai’s career is dedicated to understanding the science and how humans have altered the climate leading to the impacts we see today. Her work now addresses how we translate our knowledge into policies, programs, and societal change that meet the needs of this global moment.
