Climate Gentrification: Rethinking Vulnerability and Resilience

The Harvard Global Health Institute invites you for an exciting seminar with Jesse Keenan from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Keenan will speak on, "Climate Gentrification: Rethinking Vulnerability and Resilience."  This lecture covers recently published theoretical and empirical research defining a theory of "Climate Gentrification." Through this theory of economic behavior, the lecture seeks to unpack assumptions framing our understanding vulnerability and community resilience. With greater analytical discipline in resilience and adaptation, stakeholders can begin to identify the trade-offs that shape a variety of interventions and policies, including those relating to housing, transportation, and public health. 

Registration is free, but required.
