What can we do to stop climate change in Massachusetts?
Drought warnings in Massachusetts are a stark reminder that we are part of a global climate system where warming trends are accelerating. Is there something we can learn from applying a global lens to our local and regional mitigation efforts?
Danielle Dolan, Deputy Director of the Mass Rivers Alliance, and Beth Lambert, Director of the Massachusett Division of Ecological Restoration, will join Slovakian hydrologist and Goldman Environmental Prize winner Michal Kravcik in conversations about our connection to the global water crisis. Dr. Kravcik will introduce the new water paradigm, which explains the role of small water cycles and the importance of restoring them in urban, agricultural and forest settings to prevent drought and floods, and to cool the planet.
This virtual event will begin at 12pm Eastern Daylight Time.
