Last month, UC Berkeley and the Berkeley Lab partnered to present the Cal Future Forum, a day-long event highlighting the latest research findings of  leading researchers who are developing solutions to the environmental challenges we face.  Over a dozen prominent researchers provided a synopsis of the state of the planet, a better understanding of the challenges we face, and the solutions being developed at Berkeley—and being implemented globally.

Among the speakers were six faculty from the College of Natural Resources: 

  • Max Auffhamer, Agricultural & Resource Economics
  • Justin Brashares, Environmental Science, Policy, and Management
  • Inez Fung, Environmental Science, Policy, and Management
  • Rosemary Gillespie, Environmental Science, Policy, and Management
  • Dan Kammen, Energy & Resources Group
  • Claire Kremen, Environmental Science, Policy, and Management

Videos of each of the day's talks are forthcoming. Read more in this article by the Berkeley Lab.
