Bissell Grogan Symposium Speaker Series

Strategies for Climate Resiliency in our Municipalities
Julie Eaton Ernst '05, Lead Resiliency Engineer
Caleb Stratton, Chief Resilience Officer

We are already experiencing the effects of climate change, from devastating wildfires to unprecedented rainfall and floods. We are at a global tipping point for our future, and climate action is needed now. At the same time, we are entering the third year of a global pandemic. As we look towards the future, there is a lot of uncertainty, but also opportunity and hope. During the Bissell Grogan Humanities Symposium on February 9, we will hear from two experts working towards climate resilience from different perspectives in different communities: Caleb Stratton, the Chief Resilience Officer for the City of Hoboken, NJ; and Julie Eaton Ernst (’05), the Climate Resilience Leader at Weston & Sampson Engineers. During this dialogue, Caleb and Julie will interview each other to explore the paths that led them to climate resilience, how they are addressing the climate crisis, and insight into managing uncertainty and finding hope. Please feel free to ask questions ahead of time here.
