What can be done to prepare for a new, wetter Boston? Recent storm surges turned the streets of the Fort Point Channel Landmark District into rivers and Atlantic Avenue into a sea of mini-icebergs, bringing home the reality of climate change. It’s no longer if or when, but now. Despite various discussions about the effects of climate change on the city, few organized, public conversations have broached how Boston’s unique historic resources need to contend with this new reality.

Join a group of policy, design, and engineering experts for a dialogue about the challenges of stewardship, necessary actions being taken, and the particular impacts historic buildings must address in the era of climate change.

Panelists:
Brian Swett, Director of Cities and Sustainable Real Estate, Arup
Matthew Bronski, Principal at Simpson Gumpertz & Heger
Dr. Sarah Slaughter, President of the Built Environment Coalition
Moderator:
Jean Carroon, Principal, Goody Clancy: Architecture, Planning, and Preservation
