Explore Responses to Climate Change

Climate change impacts us as a society. The way we respond depends to a large extent on our resilience, or our ability to adapt and respond to adverse events.
Explore some of the ways in which communities and individuals are mitigating and adapting to the impacts of climate change in Responses to Climate Change, part of the Earth Lab gallery. From retrofitting buildings and installing bicycle lanes, small changes can make a significant difference in how we adapt to climate change.
Further explore the concept of resilience on January 29 with an interactive program and discussion exploring the challenges of balancing short- and long-term priorities when planning for community resilience.
