Urban Living in the Age of Climate Change: Sustainable Local Development in Hartford and Connecticut A Center for Montessori Studies Event
March 26 & 27 2020 | FREE to Students | Select Locations in Greater Hartford | Sponsored by the Center for Montessori Studies @UHartford; Trinity and UConn, Hartford
Climate change is now being felt widely around the world, from the global to local scales. Economies and societies are being challenged to respond to disruptive changes including rising sea levels, increasing extreme and unpredictable weather patterns, and events that will affect human health and well-being through air pollution, heatwaves, and risks to food security. These events raise issues of equity and social justice as the effects of climate change spread unevenly around the world.
A multi-generational event offering experiential site-visits, this symposium will focus on the implications of climate change for urban living in greater Hartford and urban areas across the state. Learning together, developing policies to confront sea level rise, possible tidal surges during major storms, changing patterns of precipitation and temperature, and health consequences of climate driven environmental change and the local actions of community gardens, outdoor learning, local food sources will all be part of the symposium. Have an idea for a site or presentation- let us know!

Best practices for supporting all children in your classroom
A collaborative team approach to ensuring success for all children
Optional Social Hour to follow the workshop.
