Please join PICHTR for this discussion on climate change, including its status and anticipated impacts on Hawaii. They will explore how to build our local community with climate change adaptation as a lever for economic growth! In doing so, they will draw from the local Hawaii knowledge and experience as well as relevant examples from the City of North Miami, Florida, where climate change impacts are similar to those of Hawaii.

This FREE event is being brought to you by PICHTR’s inaugural initiative, the Climate Adaptation Collective which proactively tackles barriers to climate change impacts by providing capacity building and advocacy to decision-makers and the general public in order to enable forward progress on the most critical climate change adaptation initiatives. We see proactive climate change adaptation as an opportunity for a more resilient and economically stronger Hawaii. Learn more about this initiative at pichtr.org.
