GAEA

On December 3-4, 2015, UMass Dartmouth hosted the Global Awareness Education and Action (GAEA) event, a two-day program focusing the impacts of climate change on the region.

Sponsored by UMass Dartmouth, the Island Foundation, and the New Bedford Whaling Museum in collaboration with seven daily newspapers located south of Boston, the event convened a region-wide conversation that brought together scientists, policy makers, business leaders, and citizens from all 54 cities and towns to discuss the issues in a manner that educates and mobilizes individuals and communities.
