The Possible Future of Water!

Join NRDC at Garfield Park Conservatory! (Right off the Kedzie-Green Line) 


"From droughts and water scarcity to sea level rise and floods, the impacts of climate change on our water resources are becoming increasingly difficult to ignore. Enter “Cli-Fi” - a burgeoning literary genre that grapples with the effects of our changing climate and envisions a future if we fail to act. The stories featured in this discussion underscore society’s changing relationship with water and convey the impacts of climate change in a way that scientific facts and numbers alone cannot."
