NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ Former Secretary of State John Kerry is leading a
conference on climate change this week at Yale University.

The two-day conference that begins Monday on the Ivy League campus will feature
speakers including General Electric Chairman Jeffrey Immelt, World Bank
President Jim Kim and actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

The conference is hosted by the Kerry Initiative, a program launched earlier
this year by the former top U.S. diplomat to address global challenges through
teaching, research and international dialogue.

The topics for the sessions next week include the future of energy, the role of
the private sector and citizen engagement and activism.
