“Influencing the Influencers: An Evolving Approach to Driving Climate Action” is the topic of the Woods Hole Historical Museum’s virtual conversation with Woodwell Climate Research Center executive director Philip Duffy and chief communications officer Heather Goldstone on Wednesday, April 14, at 7 PM.
Woodwell Climate Research Center was founded in 1985 as the Woods Hole Research Center, and adopted its current name in 2020 “to recognize the urgency of the climate crisis and the importance of the founding principles that continue to guide the center’s work.”
From playing a leading role in the launch of the United Nations climate change negotiation process to shaping the first corporate guidelines on climate risk disclosure, the center has impacted societal decision-making. The approach has evolved and expanded from a focus on international policy to encompass work with municipalities, indigenous communities, faith leaders and private sector partners.
A link to the Zoom talk will be posted on the museum’s website.
