How can Baltimoreans "strive for environmental justice for all citizens, particularly in the face of climate change?"

That's one of the central questions to be tackled Thursday evening at a forum put on by the Friends of Maryland's Olmsted Parks & Landscapes.  A panel of three speakers will address "the Olmsted Challenge: Fostering Environmental Justice for a More Humane City."

Scheduled speakers are: Scot Spencer of the Annie E. Casey Foundation; Kristin Baja of the city's Office of Sustainability and Morgan Grove, a research scientist with the U.S. Forest Service.

The forum, which begins at 7 p.m., will be held at Mason Hall, the visitors center at Johns Hopkins University, 3101 Wyman Park Drive. The event is free. Parking is available for $8 in an adjoining garage, or on the street.
