Join Shift Collaborative on November 5-6, 2018 for a Symposium on Collaborative Action, Making The Links 2018. 

Event Description: 
Join other community and sector leaders in beautiful Kelowna, BC for an event which is first of its kind in BC. Through inspiring speakers, engaging workshops, cross-sector dialogue, we will explore practical strategies and deepen knowledge, skills and tools for collaborative action.
 
What if working collaboratively to respond to climate change can increase health, well-being and community resilience?
Using BC’s Interior Region as a case study, we will draw out learnings and action opportunities for the rest of BC and beyond to building community resilience to climate change while increasing health and wellbeing.
 
Join Shift Collaborative to:
  • LEARN about the major health impacts of climate change and who is being most affected in BC and beyond
  • ENGAGE with community experiences, examples and stories of how climate change is currently impacting health and well-being and how communities are taking action to become more resilient.
  • TRANSLATE KNOWLEDGE INTO COLLABORATIVE ACTION on issues such as extreme heat, flooding, wildfires, water and drought, healthy built environments, active transportation, sustainable food systems, mental well-being, and emergency preparedness;
  • STRENGTHEN COLLABORATION & LEADERSHIP to advance cross-sector climate and health solutions in policy, planning and practice.
