HUBweek Event - Coping with Climate Change: How Will Boston Adapt?
We know climate change is rapidly altering our environment. But do we have the tools to make it better?
Join a panel of thought leaders from Boston and beyond to examine how Boston will manage the impending impacts of climate change. Listen to what we know about the science of climate risks, and what the Boston community should be worried about. Hear how Boston and surrounding communities are preparing for the coming storm, and what kinds of investments may prevent the worst types of damages. Imagine how Boston will look, as buildings and infrastructure change with sea level rise in a warmer world.
