Fulbright Impact in the Field: Climate Change and Environmental Justice
Fulbright alumni apply the skills and experiences gained during their Fulbright exchanges to advance their careers, to positively impact their fields, and to make a difference in their local and global communities. The Fulbright Impact in the Field series aims to bring together alumni with extensive expertise in a particular topic to provide insight, inform the audience, and bring new, global perspectives to the discussion.

This “Fulbright Impact in the Field: Climate Change and Environmental Justice'' panel will convene scientists, researchers, and other professionals involved in combating climate change. They will discuss the latest scientific and policy developments; how their Fulbright experiences enhanced collaboration within the international scientific community; and how the new ideas they brought back with them benefit their institutions and communities.
