Event Details

Ecosystems across our highly developed region are threatened by climate change. Local ecosystems can help us to weather the coming climate shocks. These ecosystems are our allies, and there is much that we can do to revitalize them in our yards, streets, neighborhoods, parks, wetlands and waters. Come to this conference to be inspired and learn about current efforts and new possibilities for revitalizing ecosystems. You will leave with information on practical ways you can help right now.


Program: Keynote speaker Tom Wessels, author of The Myth of Progress, Toward a Sustainable Future, will address the critical similarities between ecosystems and human society. There will be presentations (in development) on the Ecology of Greater Boston Then and Now and a Survey of Current Ecological Conservation and Restoration Efforts. In afternoon workshops attendees will meet, connect with and learn from organizations that are practicing restoration and conservation of ecosystems in locations around the Greater Boston region: soils, trees, forests and other plants, wetlands, freshwater streams, lakes and ponds, coastal shores and salt marshes.

Cost: $10 via Eventbrite.

Massachusetts Sierra Club Greater Boston Group and Biodiversity for a Livable Climate

The Sierra Club is the nation's oldest and most effective grassroots environmental organization. Here in Massachusetts, your local chapter has an over 48-year legacy of protecting the environment with successful legislative, advocacy, and educational campaigns.

 

Biodiversity for a Livable Climate was founded in 2013 by Jim Laurie, Karl Thidemann, Helen D. Silver, Jane Hammer and Adam Sacks.  We saw an urgent need to expand the climate conversation to include the seriously underestimated positive impacts of the biosphere on the climate and physical world.  We see how appropriate human approaches to nature may be able to reverse the effects of global warming despite our inability to date to reduce emissions in a timely manner.  Our goal is to contribute to planetary regeneration through research, education, collaboration and action to restore essential global biodiversity.
