Yale Alumni Public Health Initiative: Kate Troll and The Great Unconformity

October 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Come join us October 12th to hear Alaskan Kate Troll share her stories and insights in dealing with being green in a bright red state. Most importantly Kate’s talk will focus on climate change and her “10 Points of Hope for Progress on Climate Change.”

In her new book, The Great Unconformity: Reflections on Hope in an Imperiled World, she uses the power of adventure storytelling to convey key policy insights and “hope spots” in dealing with the challenges of sustainability and climate change. To inspire and empower others, her talk highlights 10 points of hope for progress on climate change, leading to a robust discussion of the most practical ways to make a difference both personally and professionally.

Kate Troll: 10 Points of Hope for Progress on Climate Change

Kate Troll, a long-time Alaskan, has more than 22 years’ experience in climate and energy policy, coastal management, and fisheries. She’s been elected to public office twice and is currently a regular columnist for the Alaska Dispatch News. In between, she climbs mountains, kayaks with the whales, runs wild rivers, and writes screenplays. The Great Unconformity draws in equal measure from her full career and adventurous life.
