RISE – Creating Climate Action

November 7, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

RISE – Creating Climate Action

You are invited to participate in Rise | Creating Climate Action with designers, concerned consumers, climate scientists, and businesses focused on alternative energy and responsible urban planning.

We know climate change is real. The question is, what are we going to do about it? Our cities bear the brunt of extreme weather, rising sea levels, and the health effects of pollution. People are seeking resources to reduce their environmental impact, and promising solutions. An effective response will require us to respond both as individuals and as communities. Our communities need help scaling up, educating residents, making alternative energy more accessible, sharing best practices for implementation and advocating for the development of infrastructure with climate change and its effects in mind.

 

The event focuses on a Friday evening reception and lecture series featuring speakers from SasakiNext Step Living and The Center for Health and the Global Environment at the Harvard School of Public Health, as well as an exercise in how we might use human-centered design to help create climate action.
