This spring, TIE has been busy sponsoring several events around Tufts University and the Greater #Boston Area. Carolyn Melkenburg, who attended the Alewife Resilience Symposium, said: “The Alewife Resilience Symposium was a valuable interdisciplinary event that prioritized how to bring people together to combat #climatechange. One of the most exciting aspects of the event was the fact that so many community members attended -- from volunteers, to community workers and city planners to discuss the risks faced by the Alewife #River watershed. This really brought home to me just how many angles there were to consider when developing resilience strategies and that community involvement and investment is imperative to success."
