Event Description
Monday, March 23, 2020 (All day) to Monday, March 30, 2020 (All day) Online Climate Change Conference
The Research and Transfer Centre "Sustainability and Climate Change Management" (FTZ-NK) and its European School of Sustainability Sciences and Research (ESSSR) are organizing the 7th Climate Change Online Conference CLIMATE2020. The objective of the online conference is to convey the most recent research results on climate change and its impacts, as well as to provide especially early career researchers from all over the world with the opportunity to present their findings at a global level. This event fills a knowledge gap in respect of thematic discussions on climate change mitigation and adaptation, which will be performed both in an integrative and interactive way.
 
The conference also offers you insights on numerous climate projects, initiatives and strategies, which are currently being implemented on the five continents and considered to be latest examples of worldwide climate change adaptation and mitigation activities.
 
The best thing: You are only a mouse-click away from this event! You can easily log in over the Internet no matter where you are actually located: in your office, at school, university or on your smartphone on your way home - participation is free!
 
Wednesday, April 22, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, April 24, 2020 - 17:00 Comox Valley 2020: 3rd Annual Vancouver Island Symposium on Water Stewardship in a Changing Climate
 
POSTPONED due to COVID-19. New dates for Fall 2020 will be announced shortly. 
 
The theme for Comox Valley 2020 is Climate Change, Collaboration and Restorative Landscapes.
 
This symposium is part of an ongoing series that highlights the power of collaboration between local governments, elected leaders and the local stewardship and conservation groups. This collaboration is essential to mobilize and respond effectively to the impacts of climate change and to reconnect the built and natural environments that surround us.
 
The series is a building blocks process. Each event builds on the last and points the way to the next. The symposium format provides a neutral forum to 'convene for action' to improve where we live.
