Bridge USA at Berkeley is incredibly excited to bring you Heated Debates: Conversations about Climate Change. This event will serve to highlight solutions to climate change consistent with a diversity of political leanings and empower Cal students to be able to engage in constructive discourse on this divisive issue with their political opposites.
Heated Debates will feature panels of speakers representing a wide array of professional and political backgrounds to create dynamic and intellectually engaging conversations on how we can adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change. BridgeUSA hopes that this event will be a step toward our larger goal of uniting people from across the political spectrum to recognize the nuanced nature of political issues and fostering a culture in which people of different ideologies can find enough common ground to take action on the issues facing our country today.
