Gearing up for the celebration of Earth Day, Amanda Brown-Stevens, Greenbelt Alliance’s Executive Director, sits down with Lara J. Hansen, Ph.D., Chief Scientist, and Executive Director at EcoAdapt.

Lara and Amanda will define and explain what adaptation and resilience mean, and how these concepts can be used to restore the Earth, which is the theme of this year’s Earth Day. They will also approach case studies and examples, breaking down what it means for the Bay Area to become more resilient to a changing climate.
