Harvard Center for Risk Analysis Seminar

"Late Lessons from Early Warnings about Hazards to Health and Environments" with David Gee, Institute of Environment, Health, and Societies, Brunel University, London.

Why are scientific early warnings of impending harm regularly ignored by societies? What can we learn from the interplay between the sciences, economics, and politics of known and emerging hazards that can help us to minimize future harms whilst maximizing responsible innovations? David Gee has worked for 40 years on reducing harm from hazards to health and environments, most recently at the European Environment Agency as Senior Adviser, Science, Policy, Emerging Issues (1995-2013). He is now a Visiting Fellow at the Institute of Environment, Health, and Societies at Brunel University in London.

This seminar is open to the public free of charge. However, building access is restricted to Harvard ID holders and seminar registrants. To register via email, click here. Registrations must be received no later than 5pm, Tuesday, May 17. Click here for directions.
