​To avoid a climate crisis and ensure our transition to the climate economy of the future is just, cities need a multi-disciplinary approach that brings together all stakeholders. Through five weeks, enrolled Harvard graduate students are invited to take part in this study group to explore the pieces needed for cities to make a just transition, featuring five topics and experts actively collaborating with cities on climate action.

Facilitated conversations with guest speakers will be followed by open discussion with participants, led by Joe Curtatone (nine-term former mayor for the city of Somerville, MA) and Kristen Stelljes (former SomerStat Director for the city of Somerville, MA).

All sessions will take place from noon to 1:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

Registration is required as space is limited.

Register now for the February 29 and March 7 sessions. Registration for the last three sessions will open closer to the session dates. If the session is at capacity when you register, you'll be added to a waitlist. We'll notify you if space becomes available.

All sessions will take place at the Bloomberg Center for Cities except the March 7 session, which will take place in Taubman 135 – CPL Darman Seminar Room, Harvard Kennedy School.
