Join Dr. Dennis Liu for a presentation on Half-Earth at the Harvard Extension School, Wilder Lecture Series. The predicted sixth mass extinction is among the most significant threats to the world. Half-Earth is a call by the late Dr. E.0. Wilson to protect half the land and sea, thus reversing the species extinction crisis and ensuring long-term planetary health. The Half-Earth lecture will cover how saving half the Earth helps nature and the climate for our long-term recovery.
Sponsored by the Salata Institute, HESEC Environmental Club, HESIRC, International Relations Club & HESMFC, Management and Finance Club.

Satellite imagery is fundamental to understanding climate change and assessing risks to natural places and communities. The biggest challenge is being able to access reliable data to gain insights, make decisions and act quickly. From conservation efforts to government planning and policymaking, satellite data is foundational to taking climate action.
With satellite imagery ranging from 10-meter to 30-centimeter and increasingly higher resolution imagery, we have created a near real-time sensor network that provides an unprecedented view and deep understanding of the human impact on our planet. Ground truths exposed by satellite imagery and other remotely-sensed data are an important way to build a shared understanding required to preserve natural places, build resilient communities and make net-zero initiatives a reality.
Climate change concerns require all of us to act. Access to satellite data can map our path to creating a more sustainable and resilient world.
