This Year's Inaugural Topic
You may have heard about the proposed TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline from the Canadian Tar Sands. The current Keystone XL proposal exists in the middle of a climate change, air quality, water quality, environmental justice, indigenous representation, North American trade, energy security, and private property rights nexus. It relies on big picture thinkers to connect the dots, and detail-oriented masters to see the trees through the dense information forest.
The pipeline proposal is one of the most significant interdisciplinary topics happening in ecological and policy sciences today. However, recent politicized rhetoric has influenced national discussion on the topic. This provides an incredible and pressing opportunity to explore a complex, international issue from many different angles across physical and social science perspectives.
The agenda, discussion topics, and selected articles and additional pre-event content are now available.
