Antioch University New England, in partnership with NOAA and the Island Institute, is convening the 2020 Local Solutions: Climate Preparedness Conference on May 11-12, 2020 in Portland, Maine.

Antioch University, in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency and NOAA, have successfully convened and facilitated three past regional conferences that have attracted more than 1000 participants. Past conferences have been a one-stop access to exceptional speakers and workshop leaders who represent many practical facets of responding to climate change and tested actions for implementing local solutions. Participants have learned how to engage key stakeholders, collaborate with vulnerable groups, and deal effectively with the increased frequency and intensity of storm events, more numerous extreme heat days, sea level rise, and coastal storm surge.
