Pre Convention Workshop: Climate Action Leads to Community Resilience
April 25, 2019 from 1pm to 5pm
Presented By: Columbia Basin Trust
As an elected official, understanding climate change and planning for climate action is part of the new business-as-usual for local governments. This workshop will equip you with knowledge needed to make policy and decisions that will help your community move from coping to thriving in a changing climate.
This 4-hour workshop will address:
- Context of climate change: How is the climate changing in the Basin/Boundary region? What is the global context?
- Relevance of climate action: What does climate change mean for municipal operations, economies, community health and the environment?
- Climate action opportunities: What can your community do to reduce emissions and address vulnerabilities to fire, flood, drought and other risks? Where can you access support?
