The Climate Summit RoundTable will join thought and action leaders from around the globe from such domains and disciplines as science and spirit, ethics and business, education and public administration. We will draw from a rich collection of experience, knowledge and wisdom, cutting across topics of economics, ecology, the dynamics of social change, political activism, and a host of other relevant areas.

The segmented 3-hour format of the Climate Summit will allow participation by subgroups of our RoundTable presenters, so that all participants may contribute to the dialogue meaningfully.

Summit attendees will be able to discuss key issues before and after the event using the Climate Collaboratorium, a new web forum developed by MIT's Center for Collective Intelligence.
