About the Seminar

October 07, 2022 9:00am—10:00am

Climate change has brought disproportionate impacts to different communities, intensifying intersectional and intergenerational inequality. Addressing sustainability and justice in climate policymaking is a critical challenge facing various levels of government. This has been made even more urgent due to the Biden Administration’s 2030 Greenhouse Gas Pollution Reduction Target. Climate policy, like many issues in science policymaking, cuts across many different and competing policy domains like affordable housing, food security, and mental health. Climate is a wicked problem, and addressing wicked problems requires a collective decision process that can integrate different knowledges.

On October 7 at 9AM ET, join Kaiping Chen (University of Wisconsin-Madison) for a New Tools in Science Policy seminar. Chen will share her research and practice in science communication to introduce how policymakers can harness online tools and strategies, and in-person community engagement for effective and inclusive public policymaking around issues like climate resilience. She will also showcase how to collect and analyze large-scale community data for evidence-driven policymaking in sustainability issues.
