Conversations About Resilience: California's Hidden Water Issues
Mar

6:00 PM18:00

Conversations About Resilience: California's Hidden Water Issues

We talk a lot about water…or do we? As the Resilient by Design challenge sparks innovative solutions to address sea level rise, severe storms, flooding, and earthquakes, are we adequately grappling with the many facets of water—how it moves underground unconcerned with city and county boundaries, who has enough (or too much) during cycles of scarcity and plenty, how do we translate principles into action, and what really motivates our individual decision-making? Please join us for the second “Conversations About Resilience” event this year where we explore the many complexities of living with water.

About the Speakers:

Kristina Hill is an associate professor of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at UC Berkeley. Her primary focus is urban adaptation to climate change in coastal areas. 

Nahal Ghoghaie manages the Environmental Justice Coalition for Water’s Bay Area Program. She specializes in shaping water policy, and community water, climate, and disaster preparedness planning. 

Renee Lertzman is a climate, energy, and environmental psychologist who has pioneered the bridging of psychological research and sustainability, creating a powerful approach to engagement and social change.

Free, RSVP required. Email reserve@exploratorium.edu, or call 415.528.4444 and choose option 5.
