Forever Learning Institute, Science of Climate Change

FLI: Climate Changemakers - Science of Climate Change

Feb 07 2023, 7:00pm EST

Climate change is often misunderstood as just warmer temperatures, but this is only the beginning of the story. As an interconnected system, when the earth changes in one area it can influence changes worldwide. While long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns can be natural, since the 1800s these shifts have been predominantly driven by human activities (e.g. burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas).

Forever Learning Institute, What is Free Will?

FLI: Big Questions - What is Free Will?

Feb 09 2023, 6:00pm EST

Do we have a path for our lives that is predetermined by a deity or how atoms are moving since the Big Bang? Or do we truly get to direct our terrestrial journey with our own decisions? Or, is decision-making simply a reaction to biological needs, influenced by external forces? We hope you choose to join our discussion. This session is hosted in partnership with the Duke Alumni Board and will be filmed in front of a live audience.
