Experts on climate change, resiliency, and the environment will discuss issues facing the Chesapeake Bay region at an April 25 Blue Planet Forum.
In this installment of the Blue Planet Forum, we will hear from an expert panel about adaptation strategies employed by coastal cities, what Hampton Roads can expect in a changing climate, ways to protect our waterways while coping with sea level rise and recurrent flooding, and more. A “Q & A” session will follow the presentation.
Speakers include University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science President Don Boesch, Ph.D., Charleston Resilience Network Chair Dan Burger, Chesapeake Bay Foundation Director of Science and Agricultural Policy Beth McGee, and Royal Netherlands Embassy Senior Economist Dale Morris.
This forum is presented by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Old Dominion University. The talk is part of the Blue Planet Forum series of free public lectures to inform and engage citizens on important environmental issues facing Hampton Roads and the nation.
The event takes place Tuesday, April 25 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Ted Constant Center at Old Dominion University. The address is 4320 Hampton Boulevard. Free parking is available in the 43rd St. garage.
