2016 Local Solutions: Eastern Regional Climate Preparedness Conference

This capacity-building, “how to” conference, convened by Antioch University New England’s (AUNE) Center for Climate Preparedness and Community Resilience and co-sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is designed to build capacity for local decision makers from throughout the Eastern United States (EPA Regions 1-4) to prepare for, withstand, and respond to severe weather events that impact both coastal and inland communities.

In addition to more than 20 interactive workshops and walking tours, the convening also features an Education Summit and a Business Continuity track.

The conference also features a poster session for student-submitted applied research related to topics that support any of the conference track or session themes, from all disciplines and methodologies. Graduate or undergraduate students from the U.S. and Canada are eligible to submit an abstract for consideration. The poster submission deadline is February 28.
