NOLA Ready Climate Series
In response to the record-breaking rainfall this year, NOLA Ready is hosting a series of webinars to discuss resilience and contextualize our city within a changing landscape. Every month for the remainder of 2021, NOLA Ready will host virtual discussions paired with an in-person volunteer opportunity. Each discussion will be led by local experts, and the themes range from climate justice to green infrastructure. After each month's speaking event, participants are then invited to join a NOLA Ready service day to volunteer for activities related to the topics discussed.
