A World of Change: Climate and Community Workshop

Continuing Studies presents "A World of Change: Climate and Community" workshop in November. 

By 2100, if we continue to develop as we are today, the earth will be virtually unrecognizable. The future is uncertain, yet there are things we know and things we can do. This workshop addresses how a changing climate might impact nations, communities, societies, and families in the coming years, and explores opportunities to collectively and individually respond now. Through facilitated discussions, participants will envision life in the Okanagan Valley in the distant future, not-so-distant, and immediate future. The goal is to gain a deeper awareness and understanding of how the choices made today impact the quality of life in current and for future generations. Participants will be encouraged to explore their own vision of the Okanagan Valley, share their ideas with others, and identify key opportunities to shift to low carbon development in the region. The goal is to identify common visions and consider plans of action that proactively address the biggest issue of the 21st century. The workshop program will be co-facilitated with community partners active on issues of climate change and climate action.
