Event Details
 
Event Name: Climate Change in Rochester
Category: Sustainability
Description: Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Film Screening
COMFORT ZONE takes an in-depth look at what happens when global climate issues come to our backyards. The specific setting is Upstate New York, but the effects, both subtle and profound, illustrate the kinds of effects that can happen anywhere.
Three residents of upstate New York — Kate, Dave and Sean tackle this question each in a different way, and for different reasons. Kate worries that her children will grow up in a different world—one more challenging than the world she grew up in. Dave sees the climate problem as an internal crisis that each person must approach from the inside out. Sean gets to the root of the science behind the greenhouse effect, and looks at possible solutions.

Panel Discussion
Join Film maker Kate Kate Kressmann-Kehoe, RIT’s Senior Sustainability Advisor Enid Cardinal and Mary Adelaide Scipioni, Associate Adjunct Professor in RIT’s Master of Architecture Program for a discussion about climate change in Rochester, what is being done, and how design can be used to help adapt to the area’s changing climate.
