Climate Resilient Boston

The afternoon will begin with presentations on the Climate Ready Boston and 100 Resilient Cities initiatives, followed by a focused, participatory session with the organizers of the Boston Living with Water competition. Come with your best ideas on how to address sea level rise and extreme weather while improving social equity and other community goals. 

Climate Resilient Boston will build on the work of Boston Living with Water, 100 Resilient Cities, and Climate Ready Boston by providing input to the City of Boston on potential solutions for the climate change and resiliency challenges faced by coastal communities. This initiative will continue to build a network of designers, engineers, and other practitioners to help advance Boston’s ability to address climate change risks.
