PEM Initiative

Climate + Environment

Climate change and environmental crisis directly impacts our community and the lives of millions around the world. As part of a new Climate + Environment initiative, PEM is hosting special exhibitions and programs about our changing relationship to the natural world that encourage reflection, inspire conversation, and spark action. We hope you’ll join us as we learn together, exploring topics like sustainable practice, environmental justice, coastal vulnerability, and more.
