Humanity is facing a global climate emergency, and we must act now to address the environmental, economic and political issues contributing to the problem. The Climate Action Conference will be held March 10 and 11, 2017, and aims to mobilize individuals and groups across disciplines and practices. The conference will feature some of the leading figures in the environmental movement as well as leaders from diverse fields such as climate science, medicine, public policy and the arts, as well as elected officials and impacted citizens.

*A limited number of hardship tickets will be available for students who declare need. For more information on how to obtain hardship tickets, please click here. Note: the link will only work for NYU users.

**We are attempting to create a Zero-Waste event so the only distributed materials will be conference nametags which you should pick-up in the Skirball lobby after you collect your tickets. If you do not have a smart phone you can view the schedule-at-a-glance on the Skirball Calendar page. Posters with times and locations will be displayed at conference venues.
