From adaptation and mitigation to education, the 2023/24 Solutions Scholars have been exploring climate solutions related to urban environments, extreme heat, and fires.

Come hear their research updates and join table discussions to advance the dialogue.

Refreshments included

Over the past eight months Solutions Scholars have been working on projects related to the 2023/24 call of extreme events, heat and wildfires, and urban transformations.  

These students will be presenting their research to date at a Solutions Summit on April 18, from 2-4pm. 

In the first hour, this year's cohort will share updates of their projects; in the second hour, each scholar will host a table to facilitate smaller group discussion around the topic of their research.  This is an opportunity to learn from one another, as well as provide feedback to the scholars who will be completing their projects over the following four months.
