Global Discovery Series: Climate Change and Cities
September 23 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Professor Michael Weisberg, Director of Post-Graduate Programs at the Perry World House, and Perry World House Visiting Fellow and Penn Alumna Lolita Jackson talk about the impacts of climate change at the municipal level. While vastly different in scale, New York City and the Galápagos Town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (population 8000), the towns in which they have worked for many years, face similar threats: sea level rise, increased flooding from storms, and population growth. They also face the challenge of having their needs prioritized in the national and international arena. Join us for a lively conversation about climate change and these two cities.
This event is sponsored by Penn Alumni and Penn Engineering.
