Martha C. Nussbaum Student Roundtable: Professors Adam Chilton and Hajin Kim

Tuesday, October 5, 12:15 PM

Join Professors Adam Chilton and Hajin Kim for a roundtable discussion on Public v. Private Sector Responses to Climate Change.

Will the public sector or private sector play a bigger role in addressing climate change? On the one hand, governments have the ability to provide R&D funds, pass regulations, and set priorities. On the other hand, private companies are taking the lead developing key technologies that will be critical to reducing emissions. We will debate and discuss how these forces will be the most important for our prospects of tackling climate change. 

Limited space is available for this event. You will receive an email if you are confirmed to attend.

The Martha C. Nussbaum Student Roundtables support the University of Chicago’s longstanding commitment to free expression and open discourse. The roundtables were endowed by Professor Nussbaum in 2019 with the intent of bringing together students and faculty with diverse, and often disparate ideological viewpoints in a respectful discussion. Students are encouraged to engage and confront ideas that may be different from their own with a spirit of civil and vigorous debate.  

This convening is open to all invitees who are compliant with UChicago vaccination requirements and, because of ongoing health risks, particularly to the unvaccinated, participants are expected to adopt the risk mitigation measures (masking and social distancing, etc.) appropriate to their vaccination status as advised by public health officials or to their individual vulnerabilities as advised by a medical professional. Public convening may not be safe for all and carries a risk for contracting COVID-19, particularly for those unvaccinated. Participants will not know the vaccination status of others and should follow appropriate risk mitigation measures.
