• Project Title: Exploring Economic Incentives to Combat Climate Change

  • BASIS Advisor: Ms. Forde

  • Internship Location: ING Bank

  • Onsite Mentor: Daniel Shurey

We need to reinforce our commitment to reducing the rate of climate change now. The urgency of our situation cannot be understated. And while the significance of climate change on its own should be reason enough for people to act in ways that combat it, it’s known that people are less likely to support combating what they see as an abstract and far-away problem if it hurts the economy in the short term. And thus, the purpose of this project is to promote solutions to climate change in a pragmatic way. In other words, to promote the idea that fighting climate change can and will bolster the economy. To make fighting it a win for everyone.
