Hurricane Sandy hit us last October, disrupting life in and around New York City, destroying homes, dispersing communities, and demonstrating what it would mean to live through an environmental catastrophe. But what was Sandy, a one-time event or the sign of a climactic trend? How did Sandy affect our lives during the storm and long after? What can we learn from that experience about our ability to deal with environmental crises and how can we prepare our communities for the next crisis?
These questions and more will be raised as the Center for Ethical Thinking hosts a colloquium, What Was Sandy?, on March 19 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room on the NYC Campus.
Speakers include: Karen Frillmann, Enterprise Editor, WNYC–New York Public Radio, Life After Sandy Andrew Freedman, Senior Science Writer, Climate Central Ilan Safit, PhD, Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, Center for Ethical Thinking
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
