Revitalizing Ecosystems in Greater Boston to Survive Climate Change

Saturday, March 31, 9am-4pm

Harvard University*

Geological Lecture Hall, 
24 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA

Ecosystems in our region can help us reduce the risks of floods, heat waves, droughts and rising seas. There is much we can do in parks, shores, neighborhoods and yards to help them survive and flourish!

Program includes presentations by:

  • A panel on Practices of Eco-Restoration, with speakers from the Mystic River Watershed Association, Depave the Way, UMass Boston, Eastie Farm and the Cambridge Committee on Public Planting.
  • Terrestrial ecologist Tom Wessels, author of The Myth of Progress. Towards a Sustainable Future on Self-organization, Co-evolution, Resiliency, and Stability. He will show how self-organization works to generate the incredible biodiversity we see in nature. He then shows how this process is a wonderful model for creating the effective, sustainable human systems we urgently need.
  • Zeyneb Magavi of Mothers Out Front and HEET on Energy Execs, Ecosystems and Alliances

There will also be afternoon workshops on revitalizing soils and agriculture, watersheds and wetlands, the urban tree canopy and shorelines.
