Event description

Description

Welcome to Measuring what Matters: Pathways to Inclusive Climate Action.

This interactive workshop marks the soft launch of the Urban Environment and Social Inclusion Index, an initiative developed by Data Driven Yale. Join us to test the beta version of this index, which leverages geospatial data to gain insights into how climate change, pollution and socioeconomic status are linked within global cities across the world. The index covers over 21 cities, from Montreal to Rio de Janeiro via Mumbai.

The workshop, in partnership with MTLGreen, entails brief panel discussions and break-out groups. Together, we will explore the links between environmental progress and social inclusion, and provide feedback to improve the content and interactive experience with the index for its final launch.

How can we advance climate action that recognizes populations most vulnerable to the effects of climate change? Inclusive climate action involves these communities in the processes of data collection and consultation as well as policy and program development.

This event will convene researchers, activists, journalists, scientists and interested individuals to outline pathways to create inclusive strategies to combat climate change and transform research into action.

The workshop will be followed by a networking session. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Angel Hsu, Director, Data Driven Yale; Assistant Professor, Yale-NUS College and Yale School of Forestry; Principal Investigator, Environmental Performance Index

  • Andy Revkin, Strategic Adviser for Science and Environmental Journalism, National Geographic

  • Bianca Mugyenyi, Co-Executive Director, The Leap

  • Shelby Angalik, Youth Climate Activist from Arviat, Nunavut

  • Caroline Larivée, Scientific program director (interim) and Team leader Vulnerabilities, impacts and adaptation, Ouranos

More to be announced and agenda coming soon! The event will primarily be held in English. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at the event, please sign up here.
