Creating Connections: Resilience and Equity in Transportation

November 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:15 pm

Transportation infrastructure is some of the most expensive to build and maintain, especially in the face of the climate crisis. Everything from public transportation to roads and bridges to the port are deeply impacted by sea level rise, extreme storms and even sweltering heat. Join the Climate Adaptation Forum as we explore initiatives around the country to improve transportation resilience and the resilience of the communities that rely on this infrastructure to get around. We will hear from experts at multiple levels of government who are thinking creatively about how to protect our infrastructure and how to make it responsive to changing needs.

Registration closes at 11:00 a.m. EDT/UTC -4.00 on November 20, 2020. After November 19, 2020 refunds will not be available.

Looking for an opportunity to meet others energized by Climate Adaptation? The Forum is hosting Climate Cocktails on Wednesday, December 2 at 4PM! Get to know and connect with like-minded people over a drink or two and stir up some climate action! More information and registration here.
