Columbia's Earth Institute invites you to a panel discussion, Speaking Science to Power: The Importance of Facts in Decision-Making, on Monday, April 2, 6:00pm - 7:00pm ET. The panel will be followed by a networking reception with beer and wine.

Connecting science to decision-making is critically important, particularly when it comes to sustainability, which affects our health and the natural systems we depend on. But how is science integrated into the decision-making process? What types and levels of analyses are needed to guide sustainability policies and programs? How can we enhance our application of science into ongoing management? Moderated by the Earth Institute's executive director Steve Cohen, this panel will explore the role that scientific research plays in decision-making in both the public and private sectors.
