Climate Hazard Mitigation and Climate Migration
Climate change is already taking a toll in the Great Lakes region. Record breaking high temperatures and unpredictable extreme weather events have many cities around the Great Lakes preparing for future sustained impacts. These hazards present an opportunity to work together and create a future for people and nature to thrive. Join this webinar to learn what has been done and what is to come for cities around Lake Erie. Invited speakers from the University of Buffalo, Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative at Kent State University, Pennsylvania Sea Grant, and JH Consulting will come together to talk about hazard mitigation around the Great Lakes and Erie in the face of a changing climate. Discussions will occur around projects completed in Cleveland and Buffalo as well as plans for Erie.
Participation is free, but registration is required. Contact Amber Stilwell, Pennsylvania Sea Grant’s Lake Erie Coastal Outreach Specialist for additional details or with questions.
