The Museum of Science and its Center for the Environment are honored to welcome Professor Katharine Hayhoe, Chief Scientist for The Nature Conservancy, for a special one-night-only evening of conversation focused on her research and work around understanding the impacts of climate change on people and our planet.
During a time of ongoing severe flooding and record-breaking heatwaves across our nation, Hayhoe and the work of The Nature Conservancy are vital players in activating public awareness, conversation, and advocacy around real-time climate issues, aiming to slow global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius by the year 2030 through global collaboration. This fall, she takes the stage of the Museum with a call to action for communities worldwide to come together to provide the solutions our planet needs.
Joined in conversation by Rev. Mariama White-Hammond, Chief of Environment, Energy, and Open Space for the City of Boston.
Following the program, share your voice and participate in an interactive conversation with other attendees in the Blue Wing, focused on how communities like Boston build resilience for dealing with weather and climate-related hazards in the coming decades. This facilitated conversation is designed to gather the opinions of a diverse range of people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. You don't need to have knowledge about the topic to participate.
