The 2015 Paris Agreement on climate affirmed the power of nature to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help communities adapt to climate change impacts.
What role can nature—through such things as carbon-storing forests, wave-absorbing salt marshes and protective floodplains—play in meeting the historic challenge of climate change?
How do communities like Boston’s best use these nature-based solutions alongside engineered solutions, to adapt and thrive?
An hour-long networking reception starts at 5:30 p.m. Talk begins at 6:30 p.m. and will include a closing audience Q&A.
We’ll kick off the talk with a screening of the Conservancy’s “The Nature of People,” a short documentary focusing on climate change and nature-based adaptation.
