Climate Fiction & You – Accelerating Solutions with Dr Imai Jen-La Plante (GCF)

Friday, February 17 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$52.88 – $58.98

Climate change is increasingly visible around the world and close to home. It can be overwhelming to consider the speed, impact, and irreversibility of the changes, from extreme weather to rising water levels to loss of biodiversity like coral reefs. The global scale of climate change makes it difficult to wrap our minds around such big challenges and find solutions.

What if we could each understand climate change in simple and specific terms and explore ways to adapt quickly and avoid the worst effects? Climate fiction (“cli-fi”) is a fun and empowering tool to do so!

Our guest speaker, Dr. Imai Jen-La Plante, will share with you this emerging genre, and how it can set us on a path to a better future for humanity and other life on Earth.

Imai earned a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Chicago and is currently Principal Data Scientist at the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the world’s largest climate fund, headquartered in the Republic of Korea.

She combines a passion for innovation and technology with experience in both the public and private sectors, and previously worked as Chief Innovation Officer at a Swiss financial services firm and Senior Manager for a global technology company. Having lived in 6 countries across 3 continents, Imai is committed to solutions that leverage international collaboration, partnerships, and knowledge sharing.

Join us for this inspiring talk with Imai while enjoying a dinner at the Cheese Flo restaurant with the participating SIWA members.
