Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century, presenting numerous major risks for our planet, international economy and security. Without sustained climate action, these impacts will have considerable consequences for our way of life and that of future generations. The lack of agreement in international climate policy heightens the crucial role of international negotiations, through climate diplomacy.

Join us for a reception and discussion with special guest, Dr. George Luber, Associate Director for Climate Change in the Division of Environmental Hazards and Health Effects at the National Center for Environmental Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who will share about the effects of severe climate change on health.
