Climate change caused by human activity is the sum of billions of individual activities that increase greenhouse gas emissions—which means that each one of us as an individual has a direct impact. Join Columbia University professor Clara Irazábal as she speaks about climate change, then measure your own ecological footprint and learn ways you might be able to improve your footprint in day-to-day activities that, when collectively practiced, can have direct and feasible results in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. (Organized by Latin American and Caribbean Lab, School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Columbia University.)
