This lively panel discussion and networking event, which is part of the Cambridge Science Festival, will address how proactive approaches to climate adaptation and water management in the natural & built environment both play a role in creating resilient communities.

  • - How does the science behind rivers, lakes and large bodies of water play a role in preservation and advocacy? 

- What steps can communities who are negatively impacted by extreme weather and changes to water systems take to raise awareness and take action? 
- What are the latest landscape solutions and new technologies for designing river systems?
- When a river bend needs to channel water, can a multi-benefit system be created? 
- How can more equitable solutions be surfaced in the discussion of proactive approaches to climate adaptation?

Panelists include:

Jill Allen Dixon, Sasaki
