As communities and cities increasingly experience the impacts of climate change, the need for solutions and scalable actions have never been more important. This is especially true in large cities like New York, which are wrestling with a range of hazards from extreme heat and rainfall, to sea level rise and coastal flooding. But what are some of the emerging ideas, technologies, and solutions that organizations are advancing worldwide to address the ongoing climate crisis? Join senior leaders from across the public, private, and social sectors for an engaging discussion on the potential and challenges of leveraging technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) to accelerate climate action.
Organized by The New School, Google.org, the Centre for Public Impact, and World Resources Institute (WRI), this event will feature live demonstrations of two novel solutions from The New School’s Urban Systems Lab and WRI which will be followed by a moderated panel discussion. The event encourages attendance from those in roles of government, industry, community activism, academia, and philanthropy interested in understanding more about how AI can unlock climate resilience at the community level. There will be an opportunity to network with attendees and organizers after the event.
Registration is required and first come first serve. The event will be recorded and live streamed for remote access with a link sent to all registrants ahead of time. Speakers to be announced soon.
