This week, Senior Research Associate Michael Cohen will moderate two panel discussions at the Americas Latino Eco Festival in Denver, Colorado.
On Friday September 15, Cohen will facilitate a panel on climate change, water, and resilient communities. Many studies indicate that the Colorado River Basin will be the ground-zero for the impacts of climate change and drought in the United States. This session will cover the significant challenges that Latino communities face from climate change, as well as potential solutions.
This panel discussion will take place on Friday September 15 from 2:00pm–2:40pm MT at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science at 2001 Colorado Blvd in Denver, Colorado.
Then on Saturday September 16, Cohen will facilitate a panel on Salton Sea action. Desert Latino communities face significant air quality and natural resources threats with the shrinking of the Salton Sea, and funding for Salton Sea restoration is critical for the wellbeing of these communities and the invaluable ecosystems of the Salton Sea.
This panel discussion will take place on Saturday September 16 from 11:00–11:30am MT at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science at 2001 Colorado Blvd in Denver, Colorado.
