East­ern Shore Land

Con­ser­vancy Cli­mate Change Con­fer­ence

April 21

The East­ern Shore re­mains the third most sus­cep­ti­ble re­gion to the ef­fects of sea level rise in the en­tire na­tion. With this in mind, the East­ern Shore Land Con­ser­vancy is fol­low­ing up their sold-out 2017 Un­sink­able Shore con­fer­ence with Cul­ture, Cli­mate, and Change: How so­cial fac­tors shape the cli­mate di­a­logue, which will be held at Wash­ing­ton Col­lege on April 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is spon­sored in part by the Col­lege’s Cen­ter for En­vi­ron­ment & So­ci­ety. At­ten­dees should an­tic­i­pate an in-depth ex­plo­ration of the so­cial fac­tors that in­flu­ence opin­ions, be­liefs, and per­cep­tions of cli­mate change on the Shore. Par­tic­i­pants will gain an ap­pre­ci­a­tion for how our re­gion’s rich cul­tural land­scape shapes the di­a­logue — or lack thereof — about how we re­spond to cli­mate risks. The $20 ad­mis­sion fee in­cludes a con­ti­nen­tal break­fast, and for the first 70 reg­is­trants, a com­pli­men­tary copy of “How Cul­ture Shapes the Cli­mate Change De­bate” by An­drew Hoff­man, a pro­fes­sor of busi­ness and sus­tain­abil­ity at the Uni­ver­sity of Michi­gan.
