Community Climate Change Adaptation Workshops

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is organizing a series of climate change adaptation workshops across the Province under the BC Regional Adaptation Collaborative initiative, and invites small BC communities to express interest in co-hosting a workshop in the fall or winter of 2018.

Communities who co-host will assist with recruiting attendees and are requested to contribute to the workshop (eg. with a venue, catering, and/or in-kind staff time). Each 5-hour workshop will explore the unique adaptation challenges a community faces, potential solutions, and the resources and funding available provincially and nationally to support adaptation activities.

Municipalities and First Nations communities with populations of less than 10,000 are invited to be local hosts. Workshop attendees will be determined by the local host and FBC and will likely include a broad base of interested stakeholders.

If your community is interested in hosting a Community Adaptation Workshop, please fill out the online Expression of Interest survey by Friday, June 22, at 11:59 pm. The Fraser Basin Council will be in touch with those who are shortlisted to host Community Adaptation Workshops.

The Fraser Basin Council is a charitable non-profit organization based throughout the Fraser Basin that is devoted to advancing sustainability across BC. The vision of FBC is “Social well-being, supported by a vibrant economy and sustained by a healthy environment.”
