Drying Rivers & Drought: What We Can Do In Massachusetts

On Tuesday, July 12 at noon ET join us for an online lecture to explore how we can address drought conditions on a local, regional, and global scale. Drought warnings in Massachusetts are a stark reminder that we are part of a global climate system where warming trends are accelerating. Is there something we can learn from adding a global lens to our local and regional mitigation efforts?

Danielle Dolan, Deputy Director of the Mass Rivers Alliance, and Beth Lambert, Director of the Massachusetts Division of Ecological Restoration, will join Slovakian hydrologist and Goldman Environmental Prize winner Michal Kravčík in conversation about our connection to the global water crisis. Dr. Kravčík will introduce the new water paradigm, which explains the role of small water cycles and the importance of restoring them in urban, agricultural and forest settings to prevent drought and floods, and to cool the planet.

This discussion on Tuesday, July 12 at 12pm ET is the latest in our Life Saves the Planet lecture series with GBH Forum Network. It will be recorded and made available online afterward. We hope you will join us, and please help spread the word!
