About the event
As Marblehead and communities around the globe experience the real-life impacts of a changing climate, join us for a program on February 7 that focuses on creating a more sustainable world through human creativity and social change.
Peabody Essex Museum’s Art & Nature Center Director Jane Winchell will discuss their climate and environment initiatives and preview PEM’s upcoming exhibition, Our Time on Earth, curated by London's Barbican Centre. This large-scale traveling exhibition “celebrates the power of global creativity to transform the conversation around the climate emergency.” Frank Lowenstein, Senior Director at Rare, will discuss the link between human behavior and policy change, and how Rare’s Climate Culture Boston initiative is helping the City of Boston reach carbon neutrality by influencing how people eat, travel and use energy.
