Climate Change and Ethics Virtual Symposium on March 25 and 26

In light of the slow progress being made to mitigate climate change, there is a need to reflect on the ethical considerations at play. How can ethics help structure the discussion and facilitate climate justice?

This virtual symposium hosted by the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, Illinois Institute of Technology seeks to engage stakeholders in a debate around the ethical assumptions implicit in our discussions and actions around climate change.
