Climate Change & Resiliency in Fairfield
Tuesday, March 23
2:00 p.m.

Fairfield Public Library has been awarded a Resilient Communities grant from American Library Association. As part of the grant, we invite you to view the NOVA film, Decoding the Weather Machine. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are viewing the film remotely, and then coming together as a community to discuss virtually.
Watch Decoding the Weather Machine (NOVA) prior to the virtual program:

Using the film as a springboard, our panelists will drill down to a micro level and discuss our community, Fairfield, CT. We will explore how climate change is affecting Fairfield, what we can do now and in the near future to address the changes. The panel will focus on Fairfield, our beaches, flooding, and what might be the best way forward.
Agenda:
  • Deep dive into Connecticut version of climate events
  • The past: Fairfield flooding
  • What is our plan? options, cost
  • Q&A
