Sustainability and Resilience: Pedagogy to Policy
Abstract: “Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal.”
– Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. We see the evidence of a rapidly changing world, but what can we actually do? This talk will focus on the intersection between science and policy in areas of Resilience and Sustainability. Over the past five years, the region has experienced historic heat, drought, fire, debris flows, floods, and even snow. Hear how the City of Santa Barbara is planning for a rapidly changing climate in terms of energy choices, water management, sea-level rise, diversion of organics, carbon neutrality, climate action, resilience planning, and climate justice.
