Climate Change and Equity: A Community Conversation
WhenWednesday, Feb. 21, 2018, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Description

Front and Centered, Urban@UW, the Climate Impacts Group and the UW School of Public Health & Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences are working on two climate and environmental justice research projects that will be completed later this year:

  1. An environmental justice map of Washington State that overlays population vulnerabilities (e.g. health & income) with environmental burdens (e.g. toxics and air quality) to identify risk.
  2. A report assessing the state of knowledge and needs for further research on equity and climate impacts across Washington State.
Join this interdisciplinary group February 21st, 2018 to learn about these projects and hear directly from communities about how they are experiencing climate change and what it means for them.

This event is free and open to the public and will be held in the Health Sciences Building T-435. Please RSVP if you are interested in attending.
