Share Cities and Climate Change: Building Resilience by Stealth or by Spotlight with Elisabeth Hamin

Event Details

Despite significant research saying that cities need to prepare for climate change and more severe and variable weather, relatively few US cities have made progress toward this explicit goal. This research will discuss the barriers communities experience in planning for climate adaptation, and the ways some communities are able to overcome those barriers -- whether through very public planning (spotlight), quieter actions that increase adaptation but are publicly presented as achieving different goals (stealth), or something in between.

Elisabeth Hamin is a Professor of Regional Planning and Head of Department for Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning at UMass Amherst. She has published extensively on climate change planning, growth management, and collaborative regional land conservation. 

Lunch & Learns occur every Thursday during the fall and spring semesters. Everyone is welcome. Food will be provided on a first-come basis. Lunch & Learn attendance is required for students enrolled in ENV0095 Special Topics in Environmental Studies with Colin Orians.

Environmental Studies Program at Tufts University

Founded in 1984, The Environmental Studies Program (ENVS) was one of the first multidisciplinary environmental programs in the United States. Our students and alumni have become effective practitioners and advocates for the environment in medicine, law, finance, industry, government, and other academic fields.

Environmental Studies is offered as a dual major in conjunction with any departmental major in the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering—normally excluding interdisciplinary programs. This dual-major program combines the depth of a major in a specific field with a wide breadth of environmentally oriented courses. 

In addition to our academic program, we offer weekly "Lunch and Learn" lectures that are open to the public, a yearly major lectureship on an environmental topic, and periodicly other events.
