Join the Healthy Communities Collaborative and explore how the various facets of the health of our cities – economic, environmental, and social – intersect. Their visionary speaker is Andrew Guzman, University of California, Berkeley. Guzman will present his new book, "Overheated: The Human Cost of Climate Change," which takes climate change out of the realm of scientific abstraction to explore its real-world consequences. Overheated shifts the discussion on climate change toward its devastating impact on human societies. Guzman will take his book one step further and present on our region’s role in solving the climate crisis. Afterward, attendees will discuss strategies for how they can use the information presented in their own communities to make this region economically, environmentally, and socially healthier and more resilient. No charge, open to the public, refreshments provided.
