Sustainable Ann Arbor Forum: Adapting to a Changing Climate

Tuesday, February 19, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Ann Arbor District Library

The City of Ann Arbor and the Ann Arbor District Library will host the eighth annual Sustainable Ann Arbor series in January-April 2019. A think tank of local stakeholders, including community organizations, local government staff, and businesses will join members of the public to discuss local sustainability efforts and challenges in our community.  The Forums will be held from 7-8:30 pm at the Ann Arbor District Main Library in downtown Ann Arbor (343 S. 5th Ave). 

The City of Ann Arbor is already experiencing impacts from climate change. More severe storms, increased precipitation, rising temperatures and extended heat waves all pose challenges to how we live, work, and play in our community. Join a conversation on how the Ann Arbor community is taking steps to address climate impacts and what more we could be doing at the city, neighborhood and individual level. Climate adaptation experts will share the soup to nuts on climate change for Ann Arbor and what we can do to thrive in a changing future.
