Conversation Series #2: What’s Next for Local Climate Action & Resilience for Elected Officials?
Our second edition of our Webinar Conversation Series continues with a necessary community conversation on the connection between climate change, income security, community resilience, and power. We’ll look at how income security policies can connect to and encourage local action on climate change. Hosted in partnership with the Columbia Institute, The Green Resilience Project, and NewStories, this virtual interactive conversation for local electeds across British Columbia will take place on Wednesday December 8th from 9:30AM – 12:00PM PST.
This community conversation aims to gather your perspectives on big-picture problems like climate change, unsteady incomes, and structural racism and discrimination, which is affecting people’s lives and choices in the communities we serve. Furthermore, we will be exploring and documenting the links between community resilience, income security, and the shift to a low carbon economy.
In the lead up to next year’s municipal elections, let’s have a real dialogue about what’s working, where we’re stuck, and what help we need. What are the concrete next steps for communities across BC? And how can Mayors, Regional Directors, City Councillors, and School Trustees support climate and community action moving forward?
Let’s explore how we can work all together to build stronger, healthier, more resilient communities, with the tools and abilities to meet their unique needs in a rapidly changing world.
