Urban Living in the Age of Climate Change: Sustainable Local Development in Hartford and Connecticut
A Center for Montessori Studies Event

Going Virtual Early 2021

FREE | Select Locations in Greater Hartfordย | Sponsored by the Center for Montessori Studies @UHartford; Trinity and UConn, Hartford

As the health and well-being of the our community is our top priority, we have decided the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation requires we postpone our Urban Living in the Age of Climate Change: Sustainable Local Development in Hartford and Connecticut fromย March 26 & 27 2020 to a future date in Fall 2020. We are grateful for the diversity of people from Connecticut communities bringing interdisciplinary perspectives and from across multiple generation slated to contribute.

We will continue to monitor the situation and continue to communicate with our presenters, attendees, and stakeholders by email and with updates on our link If you have any immediate questions please feel free to contact any of us: Dr. Ken Foote (, Dr. Paige M. Bray (, or Dr. Garth Myers (

Climate change is now being felt widely around the world, from the global to local scales.ย  Economies and societies are being challenged to respond to disruptive changes including rising sea levels, increasing extreme and unpredictable weather patterns, and events that will affect human health and well-being through air pollution, heatwaves, and risks to food security. These events raise issues of equity and social justice as the effects of climate change spread unevenly around the world.

A multi-generational event offering experiential site-visits, this symposium will focus on the implications of climate change for urban living in greater Hartford and urban areas across the state. Learning together, developing policies to confront sea level rise, possible tidal surges during major storms, changing patterns of precipitation and temperature, and health consequences of climate driven environmental change and the local actions of community gardens, outdoor learning, local food sources will all be part of the symposium.
