On March 4, nearly 800 Yalies gathered in New York City to hear from Yale scholars and professors working toward solutions for a more sustainable planet. Speakers posed challenging questions from their research in engineering, human health, architecture, conservation, and environmental science. Among them: How does Israel make salt water drinkable? Can coconuts help save the planet? How does art influence conservation?
The event was “Cities and Climate Solutions: Catalyzing Change for a Sustainable Future,” part of the ongoing For Humanity Illuminated series. At Jazz at Lincoln Center, six featured speakers gave the audience a glimpse inside their work.
