Imagine And Adapt: Possibilities In A Changing World
From the rising seas and the rushing flood waters to record-breaking heat waves and shifting landscapes, climate change is transforming the way we live. Our rapidly changing world requires us to adapt to a very different planet while imagining practical solutions to the challenges we face.
The Nelson Institute 2019 Earth Day Conference, Imagine and Adapt: Possibilities in a Changing World, will explore these challenges and resolutions through a number of straightforward, solution-focused sessions on topics such as adaptive infrastructure, environmental leadership, changes in agriculture and the cultural impact of climate change.
Featuring keynote speaker and climate-fiction author, Kim Stanley Robinson, climate change adaptation leader Yolanda Joab, and leading thinkers and creative problem solvers, this conference will offer attendees the opportunity to learn about the innovative solutions available to help us adapt to the impacts of our changing reality.
Please join us for an inspirational day of collaborative learning and exploration!
