Climate LIVE K12: Natural Ideas for Unnatural Problems: Ecosystem-Based Disaster Risk Reduction 

Climate LIVE K12 (formerly EI LIVE K12) is dedicated to bringing the science of sustainability to K12 students, educators, and parents.

About this Event 

Presenter:  Hannah Dancy, Project Coordinator, National Center for Disaster Preparedness 

Target Audience: Grades 8-12, Educators, the Public

For many, a changing climate means increasing frequency and intensity of all types of natural disaster, including floods, droughts, fires, and windstorms. New infrastructure can be costly to build and maintain, and old infrastructure crumbles under the stress of a modern climate. In this session, we will discuss natural strategies to adapt to disaster that have become 'un'natural, and what other services these novel strategies can provide to our communities.

A link to join the session will be provided to all registered participants 24 hours in advance.
