Climate change has taken central stage in recent debates, it is a defining challenge of our time. According to Mark Carney, the former head of the Bank of Canada who serves as the UN's special envoy for climate change and finance, "We can't self-isolate from climate change. Ultimately, we'll all be affected. So we all have to act." A collaborative effort of scientists and researchers is crucial to develop climate change solutions that also take into account related environmental and socioeconomic issues.
For this virtual symposium, we aim to foster the exchange of scientific knowledge and lay the foundation for collaboration among doctoral students conducting research on climate change; facilitate safe, open discussion on the advancements in on-going research on climate change mitigation and adaptation.
