Climate change webinar to be held today

A webinar will be held from 12:30 to 2 p.m. today, at the Environmental Education Center, Regents Row A116. The title of the webinar is ?Integrating Urban Resilience Systems.? The concept of resilience has been evolving as a way to address the current and future challenges cities face from a changing climate. Social, ecological and technological domains underlie the concept of resilience. Understanding how to accommodate these perspectives is critical to maintaining and re-envisioning urban environments that can persist through extreme weather events and longer-term shifts in climate, while maintaining quality of life and ensuring equal access to the benefits or the protection from harm for all segments of the population.
