Join leaders from the Urban Waters Learning Network for an in-depth discussion and peer networking opportunity to explore how we can engage community members in climate resilience initiatives. Maria Gabriela Huertas (Caño Martin Peña Community, Puerto Rico), Andy Kricun (US Water Alliance), Cate Mingoya (Groundwork USA) and Jonathan Phillips (Groundwork Elizabeth) will lead us into this conversation, moderated by Heather Passchier (National Park Service). We will then break into peer groups to learn and share from one another about how we can engage and activate various sectors of our community to build greater climate resilience.
