Climate Change Demands We Change. Why Aren't We?
April 24 - 25, 2014
The New School, New York City, NY
The Center for Public Scholarship is pleased to present the 31st Social Research conference, "Climate Change Demands We Change. Why Aren't We?," on Thursday and Friday, April 24 and 25, 2014, at The New School in New York City. We have chosen this theme for our next conference because there is no more urgent issue than climate change, yet government, corporations, and the public are reluctant to change. In addition, while a great deal of research has been devoted to issues of engineering, architecture, land use, etc., as ways of mitigating the effects of climate change, very little attention has been paid to the ways psychological factors, money and politics, and infrastructures impede change. This conference examines these issues as well as the difficult choices that must be made to foster urban resilience. We aim to make clear how these factors can be overcome and identify areas in which more research is needed. Speakers include experts in the social sciences, philosophy, architecture, environmental engineering, city planning, politics, and business.
