Millions of people worldwide will be displaced by climate change in the coming decades. In fact, it’s already happening as families flee fires, floods and financial instability.

Join this session and go Under the Hood and learn more about Quartz’s Green Haven project, an exhibition that offers a glimpse of the future using a virtual, interactive rustbelt city called Leeside, which in the year 2057 has become the first designed climate haven in the U.S.
