Opening Reception for HarvestGreen
Event Description

Boston is building at an unprecedented rate while not enough thought has been given to green infrastructure. The impact of urban heat island is increasing along with rising temperatures due to climate change.  Sea level rise and flooding is at Boston’s shores.  HarvestGreen will provide a forum to highlight elements of design that provide elegant yet reasonable solutions to better control urban climate, stormwater and sea level rise.

Escape Your Office and Leap into HarvestGreen:  Join us for almost a week-long program!  

Who should come?  Designers, planners, realtors, lawyers, accountants, business people, property owners, property managers, developers, water experts, park officials, environmentalists, energy experts, engineers, health officials, doctors, nurses, policymakers, decision makers, and anyone willing to learn something new.

Throughout the week, from Wednesday to Friday, October 24-26, the exhibit will be open and free to visit. As well, there will be two lunch & learn sessions each day discussing new topics about greening Boston.
