Please join us! Earthos Institute and Tufts University invite you to a symposium on Alewife corridor collaborative resilience. The symposium will bring together the Alewife corridor communities of Belmont, Arlington, Cambridge, Somerville, Medford, and Winchester to look at the Alewife flood plain in its entirety, and explore collaborative scenarios for tackling issues of resiliency and climate adaptation.Together, we will engage systems-based analysis with multicommunity and crossdisciplinary approaches.
Post-symposium, we envision creatingtask groupswith representatives from multiple towns, universities and nonprofitsto further develop intercommunity scenarios and seek funding to support and implement them.The goal of the symposium is to create a collaborative environment to build adaptive resilience in this corridor. Symposium topic areas include: water quality, flooding, local biodiversity, regional biodiversity, social & economic justice, hazardous waste, and collaborative infrasture (hard and soft).
