POSTPONED until further notice: Proforestation - Mitigate Climate Change and Enhances our Wellbeing

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

Increased carbon sequestration by forests is required to increase negative emissions and stabilize CO2 levels – an urgent goal to protect biodiversity and avert catastrophic tipping points. Global restoration of trees has been recently identified as the most powerful tool available to reduce emissions. Protecting forests is also the most effective means for supporting public wellbeing – especially brain health. Are we ready for proforestiation? Sponsors: Greenwich Botanical Center, Conservation Commission, Greenwich Tree Conservancy, and Greenwich Land Trust Speaker: Susan Masino, the Vernon Roosa Professor of Applied Science at Trinity College
