Edward Cameron, PhD, Managing Director, Business for Social Responsibility
Cameron is a specialist in climate change and human rights with 20 years
of professional experience working with national governments,
international development agencies, global think tanks and with some of
the world’s most recognized companies. Edward is Managing Director at
BSR, a global non-profit that works with 270 multinational corporations
to achieve a just and sustainable world. He leads BSR’s climate practice
with the twin goals of driving aggressive greenhouse gas emissions
reductions commensurate with holding global mean temperature rises to
less than 2C above pre-industrial levels; and enhancing the adaptive
capacity of business and society in the face of inevitable climate
He also serves as Policy Director for the We Mean Business Coalition, an
unprecedented alliance of seven business-facing networks driving
private sector engagement with global climate change policy. Edward has
previously served with the World Resources Institute and the World Bank
during six years in Washington, DC; has been a Senior Advisor in the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Maldives; and spent nine years
working in Brussels with the European Union. He holds a PhD in Social
Science, Economics and Business and has earned degrees in Ireland,
Belgium and Finland.
poses significant and accelerating material risks for business and
society. Growing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere
lead to global mean temperature rises and associated growth in a range
of hazards including extreme weather events, changes in water patterns,
sea-level rises, and acidification of the oceans. This in turn
exacerbates risks to business and society by threatening natural
resources, undermining ecosystem services, destroying livelihoods and
homes, and damaging vital infrastructure. On the other hand recent
global policy responses to climate change, notably the signing of the
landmark Paris Agreement in December, are creating new market
opportunities worth trillions of dollars for businesses willing to adopt
climate compatible products, services, and operations.
This event will be held in room 14-280. Lunch will be served at 12:15 p.m.
This talk will look at both the risks of climate change and how our
collective response to this risk can catalyze a thriving clean economy.
Edward Cameron will speak about the growing volume of action and
ambition in the private sector to understand risk and build climate
resilience and will explore how the Paris Agreement dramatically changes
the landscape for businesses operating in an increasingly globalized

|6:30 PM - 8:30 PM ||Arts, Artists, and de Blasio’s New York: The Arts and Profound Change
Co-sponsored by the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, Creative Cities International and The Baruch College-Rubin Museum of Art Project
Mayor de Blasio ran and won on a platform of a "tale of two cities." His election prompts us to ask what a vision for a more egalitarian society could mean for the arts in our city.
Over two more evenings -- tonight and April 30th -- we will take a fresh look at how a progressive administration could - with public support - reshape and revitalize our attitudes and priorities on a wide range of pressing issues for the arts and culture broadly. What value do we place on ensuring dynamic cultural experiences for all our citizens?
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC--$10.00 donation suggested
April 2 -- CREATIVITY AND THE CITY: The Arts and Profound Change
“We cannot be a democracy if the power of imagination is allowed to become a luxury commodity." *
Great cities big or small are receptive to the best talents wherever they may come from which in turn fosters creativity and innovation. The success of a city is determined not only by its ability to expand opportunity for all its citizens economically but to give them the freedom to imagine the unexpected and the possible.
The arts broaden our vision of the world and open us up to imaginative experiences of the other and ourselves. Do the arts mattter to a Mayor who is primarily focused on issues of equity? We will focus this discussion on how the arts, broadly defined, with their potential for critical and creative thinking can support this Mayor in realizing his vision.
