Getting to Know GRAN Issues

 

We invite you to dig deeper into GRAN issues through these upcoming webinars and online events.

  • Generation Green -- Wednesday, January 26,  9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. ET -- Webinar co-sponsored by Project Syndicate, The Elders, and The Nature Conservancy. There is an intergenerational injustice at the heart of the climate crisis. By engaging in short-term decision-making for political gain, and by ignoring the voices of those most affected by climate change, global leaders are failing current and future generations. What do political leaders in both the Global North and South need to do in the next ten months to lead the world away from climate disaster? Click here for program details, including list of speakers and registration form.
  • No Water, No Food: How can agriculture respond to the climate crisis? -- Friday, January 28, 2022  1:00 - 2:00 p.m. ET -- From no water to too much, farmers are facing increasing challenges affecting the production and success of their crops.
