About the Program
This 1-hour program is designed to introduce students to the concepts of ADAPTATION to our changing climate, and MITIGATION STRATEGIES to help minimize the impacts on human social, cultural, infrastructure, and economic systems, and build a good understanding of the difference between the two. The focus of this program will be on how local communities, households, and individuals can successfully adapt to the realities of our changing climate. “In the meantime; prepare for extreme weather events; know what your risks are; learn how to reduce the risk; learn how to adapt to it.”
