Rising Tide

: Planning for Boston's Uncertain Future

How do rising sea levels impact our region? Learn what architects, engineers, and urban planners are doing to make the coastal infrastructure around the Boston area more resilient to our changing climate.

Add your voice to a conversation about preparing for the future with planners and stakeholders who are facing these decisions. Refreshments available starting at 6:30 pm.
