Human beings are indelibly shaped by the world around us. From the biological structures, systems, and processes that we adapt from nature to solve complex human problems to the ways our every decision and action have direct implications for the burgeoning climate crisis, our lives, choices, and even our jobs are inextricably linked to the natural world. From community-based green energy hubs in cities, to Living Seawalls, there are so many ways that we are innovating to restore ecosystems, and reconnect people with Nature.
In a series of in-person salons hosted in cities across the U.S., NationSwell Council leaders will convene to discuss our climate legacy — who we are, how we will be remembered, and what we can still do to make things better for future generations. In Boston, we’ll pay special attention to the ways in which intense storms, nuisance flooding, intense heat waves and rising sea levels all stand to impact both residents’ quality of life and the landscape of the city itself.
Join us for a wide-ranging conversation on the ways our actions have consequences, the legacy we want to leave as leaders, parents, friends, and global citizens, and how the ways in which we show up as people will be mirrored in the natural world surrounding us for decades to come.
