Event: Local Impacts of Climate Change: How Can We Prepare for Extreme Weather and Climate Events?
Date: April 22
Time: 12 to 1:15pm
Location: Forum, Brighton Campus

Absent international agreements or national legislation, state and local governments in the U.S. must individually address the impacts of climate change on our communities. According to the National Centers for Environmental Information, in 2023 alone, the United States had 23 weather and climate-related events costing more than $1 billion each. How can we better prepare our region for the impacts of climate change? Join us as we deliberate over options that emphasize Western New York’s “climate haven” status, collaboratively developing local climate resiliency plans and infrastructure and ensuring government resources reach those most vulnerable to weather and climate-related events. Register for the April 22nd Dialogue.
