Adapting to a Climate in Crisis - Free Webinar

In the final conversation of our series on Mobilizing for a Just and Sustainable Future, we'll be exploring climate adaptation. Even with the best and most ambitious plans to reduce our emissions globally, we will still experience the impacts of our destabilized climate. In fact, we're already beginning to experience it. Knowing this, how can we care for our communities as we move into this future? How do we ensure food security and access to clean water? How do we protect those who are most vulnerable in our society?

Join our panel of community experts as they discuss these important questions. Then, use the things you learned about to call for a strong, well-resourced climate adaptation plan that leaves no one behind!

Date: Tuesday, June 29th
Time: 6:00-7:00pm
Location: Zoom

Auto-generated captioning will be available during the event.
