A new study makes one thing clear: Philadelphia is in for a rough time because of climate change. Rising waters and major storms will flood parts of the city. Hotter days mean dangerous levels of air pollution.
We can limit the impacts of climate change by transforming our city with clean energy and preparing for the flooding and other damages today.
Join us for one of two important events on this topic this Thursday evening and Friday afternoon with experts from around the city. RSVP for one or both events below!
Here are the details for both events:
WHAT: 5th Annual Richard L. James Lecture, “A Climate-Ready City”
WHEN: Thursday, February 4th at 7:30 PM
WHERE: The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, 8480 Hagy’s Mill Road, Philadelphia
WHAT: “Carbon Histories and Post-Carbon Futures”
WHEN: Friday, February 5th at 3:00 PM
WHERE: Penn Museum (Rainey Auditorium), 3260 South St, Philadelphia
After panelists get the conversation going, audience members will be encouraged to join the discussion by posing their own thoughts and questions on Philadelphia’s plan to deal with climate impacts.
