UM Earth Day: Ask a UM Professor Panel

April 22, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Earth Day 2020 | Watch Panel Discussion

Do you have a question related to Climate Change, Sustainable Development, and COVID-19? Ask a UM professor

Between clear, pollution-free skies in Asia, pristine canals in Venice or wildlife roaming in the streets of Denver, social media could lead us to think that the Planet is recovering while we are confining. But is this reflecting the reality of the whole picture? Is social distancing really having an impact on our ecological footprint? Those are the many questions you will have a chance to ask our faculty who have been working on Resilience and Sustainability all their life.

Moderator: Talula Thibault, Student, and Chair of the Student Government ECO Board
Panelists: Esber Andiroglu, Associate Professor of Practice in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at the University of Miami; Xavier Cortada, Artist and Professor of Practice, University of Miami Department of Art and Art History; Joanna Lombard, Registered Florida architect and Professor at the University of Miami School of Architecture; Brian Soden, Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science – Bios
