The Duke Climate Collaboration Symposia are on-campus convenings designed to accelerate climate solutions by developing new collaborations among Duke scholars and external partners. Each symposium will focus on identifying opportunities for Duke University to make the most of its interdisciplinary expertise and convening power for meaningful impact on climate challenges.
Launched in 2024, the series is funded by a gift from The Duke Endowment in support of the Duke Climate Commitment, which unites the university’s education, research, operations, and public service missions to address the climate crisis.
The first symposium in the series will bring together the Duke community and experts from the public and private sectors to explore the essential roles that the insurance and finance sectors can play in addressing future climate risks.
A keynote address, panel discussion, and reception on Thursday, Feb. 15, will be open to the Duke community and the public. (Registration is required!) A private workshop will follow on Friday, Feb. 16, for Duke faculty, research staff, and invited participants from outside the university; interested faculty and staff can register here.
This symposium is organized by RESILE (a new university-wide climate research initiative based in Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering) and the Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability.
