Our plenary panel focused on the issues raised during Mary Robinson’s keynote address. Global and local experts helped us examine the startling impacts of climate change on the essential natural resources necessary to the flourishing of our people and planet. Representatives from the public, non-profit, research, and educational sectors led us in a dialogue on what we can do for tomorrow’s children. The session concluded with a performance piece by Loyola University Chicago Department of Fine and Performing Arts.
