From adaptation and mitigation to education, the 2023/24 Solutions Scholars have been exploring climate solutions related to urban environments, extreme heat, and fires.

Come hear their research updates and join table discussions to advance the dialogue.

Refreshments included

Over the past eight months Solutions Scholars have been working on projects related to the 2023/24 call of extreme events, heat and wildfires, and urban transformations.

These students will be presenting their research to date at a Solutions Summit on April 18, from 2-4pm.
