Stanford at COP26
Thousands of global leaders, diplomats, scientists and activitists gathered in Glasgow, Scotland, for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of Parties -- known informally as COP26. The gathering was organized around negotiations for how to meet the goal of keeping the Earth's warming to 1.5 degrees Celcius above pre-industrial levels. Stanford researchers engaged with experts about what to expect from the conference, discussing goals and challenges facing participants and heads of state, moderating a live event from the summit focused on accelerating climate solutions and hosting a virtual exhibit describing Stanford's efforts to address sustainability on and off campus.
Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment Director Chris Field joined Kari Nadeau, Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics and Director of the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford, and Alice C. Hill, David M. Rubenstein Senior Fellow for Energy and the Environment at the Council on Foreign Relations, for a live discussion from Glasgow on how we can accelerate climate solutions to address pressing challenges and barriers to reaching the world's goals.
