Reinforcing Our Mission
Planet Texas’ research is complemented by ongoing programmatic initiatives that help strengthen our relationships with nonprofit partners and stakeholders while growing a network of transdisciplinary collaborators focused on climate and community resilience.
Resilience Round Table Series
Our Resilience Roundtable Panel Series brings together leaders across the academic, non-profit, government, advocacy, and commercial sectors to explore a diversity of topics related to resilience. Panels typically feature 2-3 speakers and a moderator from the PT2050 research team.
Artists play an indispensable role in the movement to combat the climate crisis and to fortify community resilience in the face of climate-related challenges. Planet Texas recognizes the critical contributions of arts and humanities in this work and seeks to collaborate with artists whenever possible.
Along with the Humanities Institute and the Graduate School, Planet Texas 2050 co-coordinates UT Austin’s institutional membership to Imagining America, a national consortium of scholars, artists, designers, humanists, and organizers from over 65 colleges and universities across the U.S.
