Sparking Climate Connections – UW Lightning Talks on Climate Change

Published on October 25, 2022

Addressing our climate crisis can’t be done alone; this all-hands-on-deck moment requires as many voices, disciplines and perspectives as possible to forge connections that will inspire collective action.

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

On December 1, 2022 at 1pm PT, we are joining with others to co-sponsor a virtual event featuring pre-recorded lightning talks. Any UW faculty or staff researchers across the tri-campus whose work is in some way related to climate change is invited to submit a one-minute video presentation. EarthLab will compile and present these pre-recorded videos as a way to identify and elevate current climate work and research interests across UW.

From 5-7pm PT that same day, we are co-sponsoring an in-person reception with food and drinks at the Douglas Forum at the Foster School of Business. Join Deans from across UW at this networking opportunity involving other presenters and centers from the lightning talks.

To submit a one-minute presentation video, please navigate through the registration portal. We will be accepting submissions on a rolling basis until Thursday, November 17 at 12pm PT. At this time, we are only accepting lightning talk video submissions from UW faculty or staff researchers. Please keep your submissions to a minute or less and refer to our website for clarifications on the process. 

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 through the same registration portal until November 23.

The one-minute, lightning talk format of this event is intended to elevate and build new cross-university collaborations, to prompt interesting discussions and to provide a comprehensive view of work around climate change at UW.
