The fourth topic, climate change, was presented in a session with President L. Raphael Reef. Songit Yun, PhD ’00, a member of MIT Corporation, turned the conversation to the Reef Climate Action Plan announced in May, which would lead the world into a net zero-emission economy, mitigating the effects of climate change. The role of MIT in adapting and educating the future was outlined. MIT is a graduate in both disciplines. “It’s a serious challenge that they’re inheriting from our generations, and we need to be equipped with the tools to figure out how to deal with that challenge,” Reef said.
