Event Description
Monday, February 3, 2020 (All day) to Tuesday, March 3, 2020 (All day) Climate Change Adaptation Fundamentals Course

Professionals working in British Columbia are increasingly aware of the need for adaptation strategies but may be unsure where to start. This 4-module, instructor-led online course will provide learners from a range of disciplinary and professional backgrounds with an overview of the current state of knowledge on climate science and a grounding in the core concepts supporting climate change adaptation. Participants will gain an understanding of regional climate trends, risks, and their implications for human and natural systems, the role of adaptation in risk reduction, and an understanding of how science-based information and tools can be used in strategic adaptation planning.

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
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.
