As the world witnesses rising temperatures, shrinking ice sheets, and shifts in climate patterns, the global community is facing an economic and environmental challenge that demands a course of action. Yet any truly sustainable solution will require a core commitment to equity.

Mary Robinson, UN Special Envoy for Climate Change and former president of Ireland, is an international leader with a vision for an inclusive low carbon emission global economy. Named “a hero and an icon” by Time magazine and recognized with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama, Robinson has expanded access to sustainable energy and fostered green economies and equal rights initiatives worldwide.

Join Robinson on Jan. 12 at noon at the Charles E. Young Grand Salon, Kerckhoff Hall, for this special Luskin Lecture that will present her unique perspective on climate change and social responsibility. RSVP by Jan. 7 here. Contact events@luskin,ucla.edu for more information.
