The annual Climate Science and Policy Conference at UC Santa Cruz brings the people who are making a difference in addressing climate change—distinguished scientists, policy makers, communicators, and practitioners from throughout the United States—to engage with the UC Santa Cruz campus and surrounding community. Each year, more than 500 faculty, researchers, resource managers, policy makers, science communicators, students, and community members convene to share the latest information on climate science and policy. We invite everyone to engage and participate. This conference continues to spark conversation and thought on how research in the natural and social sciences can lead to climate change solutions and preserve the overall environmental health and wellbeing of our planet.
