Earth’s climate is going through unprecedented changes in the history of modern civilization as a result of human behaviors. These include increasing greenhouse gas emissions, higher temperature and precipitation extremes, flooding and wildfires. This is influencing the migration patterns of humans, marine and wildlife species to find better places to live and survive in and outside of cities. By 2050 there will be 9.7 billion people on the planet, half of them will be in water-stressed regions, requiring 50 percent more energy.
With the growing threats of climate change, disruptive weather patterns, water shortages, nature will dictate our ultimate destiny. This requires a dramatic shift in how we evaluate, appreciate and find solutions for the co-dependent connections between nature, humans, wildlife and resilient communities.
The Hudson Valley is home to a growing community of artists, artisans and small business owners who are committed to addressing climate change and creating communities where people and nature thrive. We welcome ideas for workshops and side events in addition to environmentally conscious products.
