New York City’s Coastal Future: What Can Jamaica Bay Be? – Part 2

Marking five years since Superstorm Sandy, Science of the Living City is hosting a three-part event on the changing coastal areas in Jamaica Bay. This event will bring together voices from over 25 local organizations to discuss the current life in the watershed and its climate change threats, and present ideas for the watershed’s future.

Part 2: Life on the Streets of the Jamaica Bay Watershed

October 17, 2017

The communities around Jamaica Bay value a lifestyle away from the confines of the inner city, as do its millions of visitors. But neighborhoods are exposed to storms, flooding, and coastal erosion.

Part two will focus on the climate challenges facing human communities in the watershed, which contains over 3 million people and at least 20 distinct localities.
Moderator: Erika Svendsen, U.S. Forest Service

Speakers: Aminta Kilawan (Sadhana), Mike Marella (Office of Recovery and Resilience), Bibi Calderaro (artist)
