Climate Conversations

Feeling like global climate change is too vast and overwhelming to deal with? Not sure what’s happening or how all our efforts can make a difference?

Join the City of Tacoma’s Office of Environmental Policy and Sustainability for a free three-part series on climate risks. The series focuses on what we as a nation, state and city can do to reduce our climate pollution and improve our local environment while preparing for change.

Climate Change Risks - Global to Local
Hear from the University of Washington's internationally recognized interdisciplinary Climate Impacts Group on the latest science about global changes, what we can expect here in Tacoma and the south sound, and how we’re planning for changing conditions and resilience.
