Learn how Penn is addressing the climate emergency

Climate Week at Penn is back with dozens of events from hosts across campus from October 10-14, 2022. 

Now in its third year, Climate Week at Penn has been a resounding success. With over 80 events and several thousand participants, Climate Week has conveyed urgency and a spirit of innovation, locally and globally, with an emphasis on the intersections of race, equity, and the environment. 

Highlights include: 

  • Climate Week Keynote Event Native Land, Native Knowledge: A Conversation and Rap Performance About the Climate Crisis with Penn alumni guests Megan Red Shirt-Shaw C'11 (Oglala Lakota) and Talon Bazille C'15 (Crow Creek Dakota and Cheyenne River Lakota). 
  • Penn faculty and students from across the University will unite in a series of 1.5* Minute Climate Lectures to sound the alarm about the climate emergency, to call for large-scale climate action, and to share a vision of constructive and comprehensive response. 
  • Dozens of events showcasing the expertise of the Penn community from partners across campus.
