LIVING WITH CLIMATE CHANGE:
THE FUTURE FOR GENERATION HOT
, inspired by the reality that his young daughter would face the impacts of climate change, traveled the world to learn how people and governments are attempting to face the double imperative—we must stop climate change even as we strive to live through it. The conversation will go beyond the customary “woe-is-me” narrative to highlight the lessons and solutions that Louisiana can learn elsewhere (and already find in its own backyard).
Panelists to include Director of Tulane Institute on Water Resources Law and Policy
; local activist Nat Turner
, of Our School at Blair Grocery; and Director of Global Green’s New Orleans Green Building Resource Center, Beth Galante
