Sparking Climate Connections: UW Lightning Talks on Climate Change [Dec 1]

The EarthLab Advisory Board of Deans invites you to participate in an exciting two-part event bringing the rich variety of climate change research happening across UW together in one afternoon. We envision this as a starting point of connection, from which many conversations and collaborations will follow. 

Virtual Lightning Talks

On December 1, 2022 at 1pm PT, we will be hosting a virtual climate change event featuring pre-recorded lightning talks. Any UW faculty or staff researchers across the tri-campus is welcome to submit a one-minute video presentation on their work. We will compile and present these pre-recorded videos as a way to explore how current climate work and research interests intersect across the tri-campus. 

The video submission section within the registration portal will be open from 8am Monday, October 24 – 12pm Thursday, November 17. At this time, we are only accepting lightning talk video submissions from UW faculty or staff researchers.

If you are a community member, student, or UW faculty/researcher/staff member and would like to attend the virtual lightning talks, you are welcome to register as a viewer once the registration portal opens on Monday, October 24. Viewing registration will be open until November 23.

Do you need help recording your video? Sign up for office hours on either November 1 or 7 for real time feedback.

In-Person Reception

From 5-7pm PT, we will be hosting an in-person reception with food and drinks. This in-person gathering, to be held at the Douglas Forum at the Foster School of Business, is an opportunity to network with the other presenters and centers from the lightning talks and forge future interdisciplinary collaborations in the realm of climate change mitigation, adaptation and action.
