On Thursday April 4, 2019 USC will host Climate Forward: The Politics of Climate Change. With former Secretary of State John Kerry as the keynote speaker, the conference will bring together experts from both sides of the political aisle to identify how to break the political gridlock that is preventing action against the growing threat of climate change.

USC Dornsife Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies and the Center for the Political Future have partnered with the USC Price Schwarzenegger Institute to bring together academics, scientists, and political leaders and operatives to explore local, state, national and global strategies to respond to a changing climate. We’ll also consider the role of the private sector and the economic implications of action and hesitation in addressing global climate change.

The conference is open to all USC students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as interested community members.
