COVID-19 Preparedness & Recovery: An Opportunity for a Stronger New England
As local and state government agencies frantically respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, a series of meaningful risks and opportunities are being revealed that align with experiences and challenges in the climate change preparedness arena. Join us for a series of lunchtime webinar discussions examining how we can respond to the pandemic with an approach that builds a stronger New England, revitalizes communities and takes steps to protect them from future disaster scenarios.

Title: Comparing Lessons Learned from COVID-19 and Climate Change Messaging
Description: What messaging is successfully resonating with the general public on preparedness? Why are some of the COVID-19 communications efforts working, while others not? And how do these efforts relate to some of the lessons we’ve learned over the past decade in climate change related communications? Join us for a discussion featuring science communication experts and seasoned local government leaders.
