The 60-Second Lectures have been a Penn Arts & Sciences tradition since 2003. This fall, the lecture series returned to its home on College Green for the first time in two years. As part of Climate Week at Penn, faculty from Penn Arts & Sciences and across the University united in a series of 1.5 Minute Climate Lectures on September 22, 2021, to sound the alarm about the climate emergency, to call for large-scale climate action, and to share a vision of constructive and comprehensive responses.
