SPEAKER SERIES TACKLES TOPIC OF CLIMATE VULNERABILITY ON
With sea level rise and the increasing frequency of severe coastal storms, the South Shore is one of the regions in Massachusetts most vulnerable to climate change.
On Friday, March 16 the Open Minds Speaker Series hosts Darci Schofield, Senior Environmental Planner at the Metropolitan Area Planning Council for an event titled“Water, Water Everywhere: Climate Vulnerability on the South Shore”. Her presentation and a follow-up discussion will be held at 7:00 PM at First Parish Church Unitarian Universalist, 842 Tremont Street (Rt. 3A), Duxbury, MA. Admission is free and all are welcome.
Ms Schofield’s expertise includes climate vulnerability and adaptation, nature-based solutions for climate resilience, and hazard mitigation. As she has written, “Climate change is far-reaching, creating risks beyond the coast to our people, places, infrastructure and economy. “ But, all is not doom and gloom. Ms Schofield contends that, “We have the knowledge and opportunity today to ensure resilient, vibrant communities into the next century, and residents are key to ensuring our future.”
Join us on March 16th to better understand our role in confronting climate vulnerability in our South Shore communities.
