On Wednesday, March 11, 2020, join journalist and grantee Tegan Wendland as she moderates a panel discussion in partnership with the Pulitzer Center's Connected Coastlines initiative at Tulane School of Architecture, Richardson Memorial Hall, Room 201

Coastal communities across the world are now facing new existential threats — rising seas, more intense storms, and heavier rain. During the panel, local experts and officials will discuss what is and isn't being done in New Orleans to prepare for increased rain and bigger storms in years to come.

The program will feature:

  • Introduction by Iñaki Alday, Dean of the Tulane School of Architecture
  • Moderation by Tegan Wendland, WWNO coastal reporter
  • Tyler Antrup, Director of Planning and Strategy for the Sewerage and Water Board
  • Jessica Dandridge, the Water Collaborative
  • Angela Chalk, Healthy Community Services
  • Robert Collins, Professor of Urban Studies and Public Policy at Dillard University

This event is free and open to the public with a short reception afterward.
