Kaneb Speaker Series brings Woodwell Climate research to cities across U.S.

Kaneb Speaker Series

Woodwell Climate Research Center (formerly Woods Hole Research Center) is pleased to announce the launch of the Kaneb Speaker Series: Climate Change at a Tipping Point. The events will further public understanding of global climate change, impacts, and potential solutions.

“Through the Kaneb Speaker Series, we’ll be able to bring the scientific expertise of Woods Hole Research Center and our partners to new audiences, discussing a range of topics including Arctic warming, threats to tropical forests, extreme weather, and economic risks,” said Woodwell Climate President Dr. Philip Duffy. “This is an exciting new venture for [Woodwell Climate] and we’re thankful for the Kaneb family’s support.”

We are excited to announce an initial schedule for the Kaneb Speaker Series, below. Stay tuned, as new events and locations will be added throughout the year.
