Precipitation: Preparing for Saint Paul’s Uncertain Future
Saturday, May 12
Science Museum of Minnesota. 120 W. Kellogg Blvd, Saint Paul, MN 55102
How should Saint Paul build resilience for dealing with weather and climate-related hazards in the coming decades?
Residents of Saint Paul will use visualizations to explore potential vulnerabilities to our infrastructures, social networks, and ecosystems from extreme precipitation and heat events, then discuss potential strategies for addressing these threats, focusing on the priorities and needs of relevant stakeholders. At the event’s conclusion, participants will make recommendations for increasing Saint Paul’s community resilience.

The event is designed to gather the opinions of a diverse range of people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives from across the City of Saint Paul. You don’t need to have knowledge about the topic to be selected.
