What do you envision for the future of our world and our environment? Meet the Moment: (Re)Imagining the Future will feature four panelists who are addressing this question in their work, whether it’s examining how communities around the world are addressing the impacts of climate change, how we can reimagine our cities to be more green, or what we can do to mitigate the worst impacts of the climate crisis on our flora and fauna. We invite you to explore with us the wealth of hopeful possibilities that exist in envisioning our future on this planet.
