Climate change is catalyzing unprecedented innovation and integration in local and state government programs that touch all aspects of community well-being. The emergence of predictive modeling tools and advanced information sharing gives governmental and civic leaders a new capability to better understand how climate change will impact their communities with or without the experience of a major storm event. Ambitious resilience-building initiatives are underway in cities across the US and world.

Join 54th Mayor of the City of Boston, Marty Walsh and Watson Climate Solutions Lab Director Jeff Colgan for a discussion about how Boston and other major U.S. cities are innovating to address issues associated with climate change.
