OpenXChange is pleased to announce its first Open Office Hours program with the first in a series of six for 2015-16 exploring climate change. Our panel of experts will discuss a range of climate change response strategies including approaches such as divesting from fossil fuels, investment in alternative energy, environmental justice, and policies such as carbon fees or markets. Open Office Hours will provide students and other members of the campus community with the opportunity to hear from and actively engage with experts from inside and outside the Stanford faculty on issues they care about deeply or about which they just want to learn more. See a full description of our event moderator and panelists here as well as related climate change resources.

Members of the campus community are encouraged to attend a companion co-sponsored event later in the evening starting at 6:45 pm in Cemex Auditorium with Academy Award® winning director Charles Ferguson (No End in Sight; Inside Job) as he presents his latest documentary focused on climate change. "Time to Choose" is the first comprehensive film that describes how we can successfully address climate change and the challenge of global sustainability. The film describes the climate crisis and the combination of renewable energy, electric vehicles, urban design, and sustainable agriculture that will enable us to live sustainably while also fostering economic development and improved health.
