Hudson Valley Climate Summit

Poughkeepsie Day School is bringing together experts working in climate change with everyday citizens for the Hudson Valley Climate Summit on Saturday, October 14, 2017.

The events director, Liz Vinogradov, has planned an exciting afternoon summit to encourage students, area residents and professionals to engage in scientific discussions, share relevant information and learn how to get involved.  “Poughkeepsie Day School has a pool of amazingly talented and experienced alumni working in fields relating to climate change. These individuals are committed to sharing scientific research and analysis and want to help the community find ways to get involved.”

The main presenters include Radley Horton, a climate scientist at Columbia University who is conducting research focused on extreme weather events, the limitations of climate models, and adaptation to climate change. Summer Praetorius studies the dynamics of past climate in order to create context and predictability for future climate change. Libby Zemaitis is the founder of UpHomes, and a climate specialist at Cornell University, works with the Department of Landscape Architecture. Kai Lord-Farmer works as air quality and climate change analyst with Ascent Environmental in Sacramento, CA.

The Climate Summit is encouraging participation through a Call for Papers, Presentations, Discussion Topics and Tabling.
