In the face of floods and fire, heat and cold waves, cities and industry must redouble their efforts to face the consequences of climate change. How can professionals, municipalities and industries work together to unite efforts in these three areas to more effectively face the urgent challenges of climate change? For too long these issues have been addressed in silos. What are the social implications and human impacts of climate change that we can incorporate more fully into these disciplines? How would a Green New Deal link these efforts, as we rebuild our legacy infrastructure and systems?
