Visit from Award Winning Author Kim Stanley Robinson
On April 5th, C2R2 will co-sponsor a very special event. Novelist Kim Stanley Robinson will read from and discuss his new novel, New York 2140, which presents a vision of our region in a future of extreme sea-level rise. Robinson will then join a panel of distinguished Rutgers and C2R2 faculty with expertise in climate science (Robert Kopp), urban planning (Clinton Andrews), urban agriculture (Laura Lawson) and the environmental humanities (Jorge Marcone). The panel will discuss the novel and its vision. A book signing opportunity will follow.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information and to register, check out the event website.

5th Anniversary HBCU Climate Change Conference
The Fifth Anniversary HBCU Climate Change Conference will be held in New Orleans, LA. The event, which is being hosted by Dillard University’s Deep South Center for Environmental Justice in collaboration with the Texas Southern University, will featured a keynote by C2R2 Director Bob Kopp. Dr. Kopp will give a talk on his research entitled Coasts in times of sea-level rise.
On January 13th, C2R2 had its introductory workshop with its first cohort of trainees. At the workshop, the trainees were introduced to each other, C2R2 faculty and staff, and the program itself. The trainees also practiced using models to connect their ideas and as a tool to share their thinking with others.
