    Webinar: Having the Climate Change Conversation
    Tools and Techniques to Engage Council and the Community

September 15, 2015, 12 - 1:30 p.m. EDT

Canadian municipalities of all sizes are taking action on climate change by developing and implementing local action plans. To create a meaningful plan, municipalities need to cultivate buy-in from corporate and community stakeholders, including municipal council and staff, local utilities, businesses, real estate developers, school boards, non-governmental organizations and the general public. These same stakeholders also become key partners in implementing climate change actions.

Presented by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program, this webinar will focus on strategies that your municipality should consider when mobilizing and engaging your municipal council and community in climate change planning.

You will learn:

  •   How to communicate climate change issues to a range of audiences
  • Which tools and techniques municipalities are using for effective stakeholder consultation.

Speakers include:

  • Amy Huva, Director, Canadian and International Networks, Climate Access
  •  Ewa Jackson, Manager, ICLEI Canada
  • Kailyn Smith, Sustainability Coordinator, City of Vaughan
  • Krista Daniszewski, Solid Waste Coordinator, Township of Langley
