Drought and Heat Waves: Preparing for Metro-Phoenix’s Uncertain Future

Saturday, September 16 | 9 a.m.–4 p.m.

Free with application; selected participants will receive a stipend. 
Recommended for: Grade 12 and adults

How should communities build resilience for dealing with weather and climate-related hazards in the coming decades?
Participants will use visualizations to explore potential vulnerabilities to our infrastructures, social networks, and ecosystems from drought and heat wave related events, then discuss potential strategies for addressing these threats, focusing on the priorities and needs of relevant stakeholders. At the event's conclusion, participants will make recommendations for increasing Metro Phoenix’s community resilience.

Apply to participate in this day-long forum at Arizona Science Center. The event is designed to gather the opinions of a diverse range of people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. You don't need to have knowledge about the topic to be selected. Applicants who are selected to participate will be notified in August.
