Kroon Hall hosts Yale Climate Conference September 26, 2017

Kroon Hall, in the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, this week hosted the Yale Climate Conference.


Opened by former US Secretary of State John Kerry, the conference convened business, political, and diplomatic leaders to set a policy agenda for addressing climate change.


"We are not here to debate the science," Kerry said. "We are here to lay out an agenda, and to measure where we are, where have to go, and how to get there."


Kroon Hall was awarded LEED Platinum certification and has won numerous sustainability awards since its opening in 2009.
