Yale Climate Day brings the Yale community together to discuss climate and global environmental change in the Earth system. This year, YIBS will be hosting an in-person event including Faculty research talks on oceans and climate in recognition of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030). Research talks will be followed by a discussion session, a poster session showcasing the work of emerging scholars, a photo exhibit, and happy hour! The event is free and open to the Yale community. Meals, breaks, and a reception are included in the free registration. Faculty research talks will be recorded and available for later viewing for those unable to attend in person.
