Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., will speak on campus next week when he gives the keynote address for a conference on the national security implications of climate change.
Kerry will speak on Sept. 10 as part of an all-day conference hosted by the Elliott School of International Affairs and the American Security Project. His speech will be held in the Jack Morton Auditorium.
“The conference will discuss how climate change will impact food shortages, scarcity of resources and mass migration and the stability of countries and national and international security,” according to the event description on the Elliott School Web site.
Two hundred seats will be available, and students wishing to attend the event should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat, said Nick Massella, a University media relations specialist.
Kerry was last on campus in 2004, when Howard Dean – then the governor of Vermont – endorsed him for president.
