Climate change is not a far-off problem. It is happening now and is having real consequences on people’s lives, the United Nations writes on its website. With a sense of change in the air, U.N. Secretary-General Gan Ki-moon has invited world leaders to Climate Summit 2014 to catalyze governments, industry and civil society worldwide toward substantial commitments for a low-carbon economy to mitigate climate change.
In advance of this meeting, the University of Wisconsin-Madison with other co-hosting organizations has organized A Civil Society Event on Action in Climate Change and Health. The event is also part of Climate Week NYC 2014.
