Graduate Students Tackle Climate Change
The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference led to a historic agreement, in which 195 nations promised to reduce future greenhouse gas emissions. Questions still remain, however, as to how the global community will develop action plans to implement the agreement that are both scientifically and politically feasible.
Three graduate students from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School chose to tackle these questions as part of a day-long climate change simulation competition prepared by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA).
Cara Goldenberg MPA ’17, Bonnie Krenz MPA ’16 and Ken Sofer MPA ’17 were selected to represent the Wilson School in the Northeast region’s competition, held Feb. 27, 2016, at Columbia University – one of eight competition sites worldwide. More than 50 students spent their Saturday competing on one of three different teams at Columbia.
