LWVMA and LWV-Boston are excited to team up with the New England Aquarium and UMass Boston School for the Environment for “Extreme events and climate change: What we know and what we can do.”

Register now for the forum at the Aquarium’s Simons IMAX® Theatre Thursday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required through the Aquarium’s website.  See and share the invitation.

This event is the second in the LWVMA Climate and Energy Solutions Series, and is also part of the Aquarium’s Lecture Series.  The speaker, Dr. Ellen Douglas, will discuss our changing climate, what changes may be in the future for Boston and beyond, and plans for how to adapt to these changes.

Please add this event to your League calendars and help spread the word. Consider organizing groups to come to Boston via public transportation and carpools.

The LWVMA Steering Committee for Environmental Action and Advocacy is coordinating the LWVMA Climate and Energy Solutions Series, regional forums around the state in collaboration with local Leagues and other organizations.  The first forum, held in Worcester in May, is posted on YouTube.
