Climate Disruption Seminar Series

In these practitioner seminars, invited experts and leaders from academia, business, government, or civil society present in a format designed to foster interactive engagement with students. Two or three students take the lead on organizing each seminar over the course of the semester, each of which typically includes statements or presentations by the invited speakers, and a segment of student-moderated Q&A.

Conversations: A Virtual Forum on Climate Change Policy

Sponsor: Harvard Project on Climate Agreements

HPCA is conducting a series of virtual forums addressing key issues in climate-change and related energy policy. Each forum will feature an expert guest and will be moderated by Robert Stavins, Director of the Harvard Project, or another Harvard faculty member. We hope you can join us!

Energy Policy Seminar Series

Sponsors: Environment and Natural Resources Program; Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government; Harvard University Center for the Environment

Hosted each semester at HKS, the Energy Policy Seminar Series provides a public forum for students, faculty, and interested community members to deepen their knowledge of current issues surrounding energy systems and sustainability. The EPSS features a range of speakers, from academic experts to science journalists to climate activists.

Seminar in Environmental Economics and Policy

Sponsor: Harvard Environmental Economics Program

Co-hosted by Robert Stavins and James Stock as part of the API-905Y/ECON-3116 course. Support from Enel Endowment for Environmental Economics and the Department of Economics is gratefully acknowledged.

New Directions in Regulation

Sponsor: Regulatory Policy Program

The New Directions in Regulation seminar series, organized and hosted by the Regulatory Policy Program, represents the preeminent forum in the country for engaging scholars and practitioners in an exploration of emerging trends in regulation. Since 1998, we have held more than 200 seminars, led by leading scholars from Harvard and around the world. 

Science and Democracy Lecture Series

Sponsor: Program on Science, Technology, & Society

Once a semester, the STS Program, with co-sponsorship from other local institutions, hosts an installation in its Science and Democracy Lecture Series. The series aims to spark lively, university-wide discussion of the place and meaning of science and technology, broadly conceived, in democratic societies. We hope to explore both the promised benefits of our era’s most salient scientific and technological breakthroughs and the potentially harmful consequences of developments that are inadequately understood, debated, or managed by politicians, institutions, and lay publics.
