Biodiversity loss. Climate change. Health crisis. Economic disruption. The challenges are complex, and while no single answer can save the planet, one initiative can uncover new ways to mitigate, adapt, and engage in an era of rapid change.
The Yale Planetary Solutions Project brings together scientists and scholars from divergent fields to combine expertise that finds solutions to humanity’s most pressing problems.
By identifying productive connections across disciplines, the Planetary Solutions Project can accelerate the development of approaches that work, from carbon mitigation to more effective economic policy to environmental justice. We believe in science, fact-based policy, and the power of people to improve our Earth—and our future.
