HOT TOPIC
In the past few weeks in St. Louis, we have experienced record drought, record heat and record rainfall. We know extreme weather events like this are exacerbated by the climate crisis and will likely accelerate further. How should we be building - or not building - to address climate mitigation and adaptation? How can we pursue new and different solutions now? 

PLEASE

come to this extended coffee break prepared to participate in a conversation! And consider reviewing the following stories from CNN:
