Boston faces many challenges in the future relative to the impacts of climate change (catastrophe) by 2100, and beyond: rising sea level, increased precipitation, increased heat and rising inequality. Yet, the sense of urgency around these challenges and the will to boldly solve them is lacking. Rather than "band-aids", Boston needs radical, outside-the-box thinking and scalar solutions to meet these challenges, both now and into the future, to maintain its success - thriving in a world in flux.
This presentation pulls together three local experts in architecture and planning, civil engineering and community engagement to propose three outlandish provocations for the City of Boston, not yet proposed by the BPDA's Greenovate program - ideas which will be controversial, provocative and even outlandish, but which also represent real opportunities and scalable solutions to the challenges we face - advice the City needs but perhaps isn't ready (yet) to hear.
