About this Event

The Global Climate Action Symposium will bring together a wide range of experts to showcase climate change engagement by local student activists, scientists and engineers, business and policy experts, and artists. Jointly sponsored by Georgia Tech and six European consulates during European Climate Diplomacy Week, the event will be held in the brand-new Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design, where guests can learn about how the building will produce more energy than it uses, collect and recycle water for its operations, and promote a just and equitable world.
