A New Climate Story, Eamon O’Connor (MUP & MPA ’19)

As part of the second-semester core planning studio in 2017, Eamon O’Connor (MUP & MPA ’19) developed a community engagement strategy related to climate change in East Boston. Research on East Boston’s vulnerabilities to climate change and gentrification revealed that any climate adaption strategy for this diverse, working-class neighborhood would demand thoughtful communications. This project presented a framework and set of deliverables to bring residents along the journey toward resilience.
