Event description

Description

The BC Municipal Climate Leadership Council is hosting the 2019 Climate Leaders Institute from November 7-8 at the Radisson Hotel Vancouver Airport in Richmond, BC.

CLI is designed for locally elected officials (Mayors, Councillors and Area Directors) in British Columbia who are interested in deepening their skills and knowledge and leading their communities in taking bold climate action. Municipal staff involved in climate change planning are also welcome to attend (1 staff person per community).

Please contact the organizer if you wish to attend and are not a BC locally elected official or local government staff person.

Program Overview

Engaging panels and speakers will share their insights and inspiration in plenary sessions and break out dialogue sessions. Three themes will guide the content of these sessions:

  1. Communicating: Learn the latest techniques in communicating the importance of climate change action and building support with stakeholders.
  2. Organizational Planning: Discover ways to embed climate action across all aspects of municipal decision making to ensure lasting impact.
  3. Knowledge sharing: Hear about high impact climate action from across BC and design bold solutions that fit the context of your community
