Climate Conversations – Hot House: The Converging Crises of Housing Shortage and Climate Change

September 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Arizona is on the frontlines of two simultaneous modern crises: a housing shortage crisis and a climate change crisis. These two problems are generally addressed separately, but how we solve one will impact our options for solving the other. Join environmental journalist Joan Meiners for a talk about a project to be published in The Arizona Republic that explores the intersection of these two crises and how we can build better to prepare for a warmer, drier future.

This program is part of the Climate Conversations series hosted by Arizona Humanities.
