Former Vice President Al Gore, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and bestselling author on climate change, will speak at UC Berkeley today (Wednesday, April 29) at 12:30 p.m. The event is full and the waitlist is long, but those who didn’t land a ticket still have a chance to catch the talk with this livestream link.
Gore’s talk, which will take place at International House on campus, is part of the Dean’s Speaker Series. The event is sponsored by the Berkeley-Haas School of Business’s Dean’s Speaker Series and Institute for Business and Social Impact.
At Berkeley, Gore plans to discuss the climate crisis and how humanity should move forward. After his hourlong talk, he will answer questions from students and audience members during a fireside chat with the director of the Institute for Business and Social Impact, professor Laura D’Andrea Tyson, and Berkeley-Haas Dean Rich Lyons.
Gore is the chairman of the Climate Reality Project, a nonprofit he founded that works to find solutions for the global climate crisis and to inspire people to get involved in the movement to help create a “healthy, sustainable and prosperous future by making a global shift from dirty fossil fuels to clean, renewable energies like solar and wind.” He has written many books on climate change, most recently The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change. He also won an Oscar for his documentary film An Inconvenient Truth.
