Designing For Climate Change

Guest: Dr. Jesse Keenan, Harvard University Graduate School of Design

Climate change is leading to more extreme weather events, forest fires and rising waters along our coastlines. Recently, a conference was held in Duluth to discuss these and other climate-related issues. Dr. Jesse Keenan is a social scientist on the faculty of the Harvard University School of Design and is an expert on the impacts of climate change on property and infrastructure. His keynote presentation at the conference was titled Destination Duluth: The Fact and Fiction of a Shared Climate Future. Keenan believes that Duluth may be a potential refuge for people leaving other parts of the country due to climate change.
