What are local experts saying we can do to understand and/or help avoid problems in our own region caused by environmental issues and climate change?
Tune in to Planet Philadelphia 4-5 pm Friday 12/21/18 on WGGT-LP 92.9 FM Germantown Community Radio and streaming at gtownradio.com to hear what these experts have to say:
Roland Wall. Director Patrick Center for Environmental Research at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University in Philadelphia, has academic interests including urban ecology and coupled human/natural systems. He is attending the UN Conference of Parties 24 (COP24) in Poland about the environment which has just concluded. He will talk about the COP24 and also about what the Philadelphia region can expect to happen, from a scientist’s point of view, because of climate change.
Allison Acevedo, Esq., Director of Environmental Justice at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), has worked at the U.S. Department of Labor and recently co-founded the Philadelphia Black Giving Circle among other jobs supporting systems change and resource collaboration.
