The inaugural Wilkes Climate Summit, taking place on May 16-17, will bring together leading policymakers and nationally recognized scientists, foundations and innovators to discuss the most promising and cutting-edge solutions for climate change. The two-day event, hosted by the Wilkes Center for Climate Science & Policy, will feature keynotes and breakout sessions, as well as presentations by finalists for both the historic $1.5 million Wilkes Center Climate Prize at the University of Utah and the U Wilkes Center Student Innovation Prize.

“The Wilkes Climate Summit is a venue for forward-thinkers to bring real climate solutions to the table,” said College of Science Dean Peter Trapa. “This event demonstrates the many ways that the Wilkes Center is making an impact on one of the defining issues of our time.”

The Wilkes Climate Summit is being held at the Cleone Peterson Eccles Alumni House at the University of Utah campus.
