Our supply of good-quality coffee—coffee in general—is directly being threatened by climate change. The $70 billion coffee industry has identified it as a significant operational challenge.

Curious to learn about novel solutions to this worldwide environmental threat? Interested to hear about how the problem was looked at from different angles, e.g. research institutions, nonprofits, and corporate sectors? Want to learn how you can positively impact the coffee supply chain? (Read more about how Nicholas School students team with Counter Culture Coffee to help small farmers adapt to climate change.)

Come learn the answers to these questions and more by attending this morning conversation (with high quality coffee) to find out how Nicholas School of the Environment faculty member, Dr. Elizabeth Shapiro‑Garza, associate professor of the practice of environmental policy and management, and Claire Fox MEM'16, MF'16, conservation coordinator for the Greenbelt Land Trust, have worked to develop climate change adaptation solutions.
