Building Resilient Communities: Climate Adaptation in Victoria

Invitation to Building Resilient Communities: Climate Adaptation in Victoria

The event is FREE!

Date: June 6th, 2024

Time: 5:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Location: Ambrosia Banquets & Events, 638 Fisgard Street, Victoria, BC

Join the Community Social Planning Council, climate experts and community members for an evening of learning, conversation, and good food on June 6th. Speakers from the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium, First Nations, and the City of Victoria will share climate projections for Victoria and how communities can be ready to adapt. We’ll share a meal, then have breakout conversations to hear your thoughts and concerns about climate change, and what would help community members build resilience.
This event is part of the Climate Equity by Design project led by the Community Social Planning Council, which will inform the City of Victoria’s forthcoming Climate Change Adaptation Plan to ensure that adaptation strategies are tailored to the unique needs of the community and based on the lived experience of those who are most at risk from the impacts of climate change. The CEbD project focuses on low-income, IBPOC (Indigenous, Black, and People of Color), 2SLGBTQ+ individuals and households, Indigenous communities and racialized minorities to ensure that adaptation planning in Victoria is reflective of their expressed needs, perceptions and capacity.
Please join us to share your thoughts and connect with others around resilience!
