After spending time learning about climate technology and local charity, The Prince and Princess of Wales wrapped up in layers and headed for the city harborside and visited Piers Park. The couple saw the changing face of the city’s shoreline as it contends with rising sea levels.
They were joined by Boston Mayor, Michelle Wu, at Boston’s waterfront, where they heard from representatives of key environmental organizations such as Boston Harbor Now, Stone Living Lab, the Trustees of Reservations and The Harborkeepers. They also spoke with members of the community about their experiences with flooding and storm surges, as well as the projects underway to mitigate the risks of climate change while promoting equity among the diverse residents of East Boston.
Boston Harbor Now’s Stone Living Lab has collaborated with Eartshot 2021 finalist Living Seawalls to research and test nature-based ecological restoration solutions around Boston’s waterfront. Living Seawalls designs panels designed to mimic natural habitat formations like rock pools and mangrove roots that can be fitted to waterfront infrastructure to promote marine biodiversity. Over the coming months, Living Seawalls will work with the Stone Living Lab to design, manufacture and install these panels in two sites along Boston Harbor.
