UBC Climate Resilience Webinar 26.3.2019

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 10:30 to 12:00

Registration is open - act now! 

UBC Climate Resilience Webinar will be held on 26.3.2019 at 10:30 – 12:00 EET. The webinar will focus on climate resilience work in UBC cities.  The webinar will be held in English and will be free of charge.

This webinar is a great opportunity for our UBC cities to both present their climate work as well as learn from what others are doing in their pursuit toward climate resilience. According to the results of the CDP Cities Questionnaire 2018, UBC cities are generally more action-oriented and already making a change when it comes to climate change adaptation and preparedness than cities elsewhere in the world. Thus, our cities have the motivation and good practices to share with others who have yet to prepare (or are in the process of preparing) their strategies and action plans for more climate resilient urban environment.

So, take this chance to learn and exchange good practices with your UBC member city colleagues!

We will have cities of Tartu and Turku to present their climate work examples and a guest speaker from CDP to highlight how climate change related data disclosure and benchmarking helps to make our cities more resilient.
