Best Practices: Preparing for Climate Change

Wednesday January 29, 6:00pm
BSA Space (290 Congress St, Boston)

Join us for a follow-up conversation on resiliency, nearly six months after the BSA-initiated report on “Best Practices” for building resiliency was released.

Sarah Slaughter from the Built Environment Coalition and a member of the consultant team which delivered the report will discuss research scope and methodology, recommendations for climate change adaptation and building resilience in Boston and beyond.  

Fiona Cousins, Principal at Arup and an author of Two Degrees: The Built Environment and Our Changing Climate, will discuss the ways in which our built environment should be designed to respond to the challenges of global warming. Both mitigation and adaptation strategies will be discussed with an emphasis on how these build resilience at the community and building scales. 
 
Moderated by Mike Davis, 2013 BSA President, the discussion will begin at 6pm including plenty of time for Q+A.  Reception follows.
