*How Can We Prepare for *

*Climate-Related Emergencies? *

/*Tuesday, March 20 at 7:00pm
Cambridgeport Baptist Church, 459 Putnam Ave.*/


Extreme weather events have escalated in recent years -- floods, 
droughts, and storms. Progressive climate change, rising ocean levels, 
and depletion of basic resources such as land and water make future 
emergencies more and more likely. We need to find ways as a community to 
prepare for these threats. Hear about practical steps we can take, and 
share your ideas. Our panel will include:

*Sam Lipson*, Director of Environmental Health, Cambridge Public Health 
Department

*Helen Kobek*, community activist and co-leader of Do-It-Ourselves workshops

*George Mokray*, Cambridgeport resident and longtime solar activist


/Tuesday, March 20 at 7pm
Cambridgeport Baptist Church
459 Putnam Av, Cambridge
(corner of Magazine St. and Putnam Ave)/

GreenPort envisions and encourages a just and sustainable Cambridgeport 
neighborhood
