Climate Change on Long Island – The Lived Experience

Our panel will examine the lived experience of climate change on Long Island. Fishermen, farmers, construction engineers, scientists, pulmonologists, and naturalists help us move past the debate over climate change. We examine how it affects Long Island now and in the future. Collectively we will examine solutions.

Learn about the revolutionary land management plan used by our hosts, the Sisters of St. Joseph (CSJ). The solar farm the CSJ are building is one of many ways they model a new future for all of us.
