Description

There is no question that the Earth’s climate is changing. The question is: to what degree do human beings have an impact on the effects of climate change, and what can we do about it? Which is better equipped to handle the consequence of our own inaction, the government or the free market? Given the complexity of the past and the fractured nature of the present, no easy solutions exist for the problem of climate change.

On an issue of such enduring importance, progressives and conservatives alike must recognize the common ground that we all share: a firm belief in the value of teaching and learning together. Join the Hauenstein Center and Koeze Business Ethics Initiative as we present a new panel format of leading experts to discuss this important topic. Three individuals will argue on behalf of the government intervention and the Green New Deal, while three will argue for market-based solutions to our everchanging climate.

Recommended Parking: Seward Ramp

All forums are free and open to the public. Reservations for forums are strongly recommended. They guarantee a seat in the building but not in the main hall. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors to the main hall open approximately a half hour before the program begins.
