Water is the ultimate human resource. It’s also facing pending peril in the face of climate change.
Do you geek out over ecosystems? Or perhaps ponder the civic implications of environmental issues, like the impacts of climate change in urban areas? Then you will want to join Dr. Raluca Ellis, an environmental scientist directing the Climate and Urban Systems Partnership (CUSP), and a panel of other experts at The Waterways of a Changing Climate.
The event, held next Thursday, November 10, is a part of a speaker series held at The Franklin Institute, and free to the public with advance registration.
The panel will be leading conversations about water and climate “from the depths of the ocean to our own backyard”, including changing shorelines, the national/regional impact of weather-climate interplay and Philadelphia’s own efforts to manage the changing water scene in between the Delaware and the Schuylkill rivers. Participants will include Retired Navy rear admiral Dr. David Titley, Dr. Radley Horton and Sarah Wu, Deputy Director of Philadelphia’s Office of Sustainability.
