Educational Forum: Building Resilient Communities in a Changing Climate

The Ohio State University and the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission are joining to host a dialog on “Building Resilient Communities in a Changing Climate.” Experts from Ohio State, MORPC, and central Ohio communities will present the challenges facing local infrastructure and the public health resulting from localized climate change impacts, what actions are currently being taken to combat these problems, and how Ohio State, MORPC, and local communities can work together to best prevent, mitigate, and adapt to the effects of our changing environment. We invite you to join us for this free forum focusing on challenges facing professionals in transportation, water and energy utilities, and public health and safety.
