A Breath of Fresh Air: Managing Air Quality

By Antioch University New England
Burning fossil fuels for energy, driving cars, and incinerating garbage are all practices that cause air pollution leading to a number of health concerns including asthma, allergies, lung disease, anxiety, and depression. The elderly, young children, pregnant women are especially vulnerable. This session examined the current scientific understanding of the impacts of climate change on air quality and discussed adaptation measures to reduce the public health consequences.

Circular Packaging: The State of Play

By GreenBiz
A confluence of forces is roiling the packaging industry. The combination of concerns about plastic waste, the emergence of the circular economy, and the blossoming of advanced, environmentally friendly materials is changing how manufacturers and brands are thinking about packaging. Suddenly, companies are finding that their brand equity and growth potential may be threatened over concerns about waste and pollution.

The Next Frontier: Emerging Models in Renewable Energy Procurement

By YaleClimateConnections
Companies of all sizes are investigating ways to take back control of their energy procurement and source more renewable energy from clean power sources, including wind and solar projects. That strategy is often informed by a corporate desire to reduce carbon emissions but there are many other potential benefits — there are also exciting new business models quickly expanding the options for corporate buyers, especially those considering their first deal.

The Role of Buyouts in Flood Resilience

By Antioch University New England
Buying and demolishing flood damaged homes is often the best option for the owners, the town, the waterway, and public safety. When FEMA funds can be matched with HUD funds, this can take place with very little cost to towns and get owners 100% of their pre-flood value. However, like any program with two sources of federal funds and some state and local involvement, there can be many obstacles along the way. Come and learn from the duo that made many of the buyouts happen in Vermont post-Tropical Storm Irene.  This presentation will dive from the high-level rationale for such a program to the ground level of actually getting it done 150 times. If your community is next to the ocean or along a river, you should have a handle on how to use funds to buy out properties, thus permanently avoiding future repeated flood damage. Register Now 

Webinar: Timing is Everything: How Fish and Wildlife are Responding to Climate Change Through Shifts in the Timing of Life Events

Changes in phenology, or the seasonal timing of recurring life history events such as breeding, feeding, and movements, have emerged as a primary indicator of species’ responses to climate change. In terrestrial environments, shifts in phenology have been well documented; for example, earlier onset of spring and advances in the timing of emergence, flowering, and arrival times of migratory organisms have all been observed. Far fewer examples exist that provide direct evidence for climate-induced shifts in marine phenology.
