Climate Action Together: A Roundtable Discussion About Local Implications of Climate Change on Our Community's Health, Safety, and Ecology
Thursday, January 20, 5PM-7PM
Register to Attend (Zoom)
Climate change is upon us in the form of increasingly extreme weather events, changing seasons, and the associated stress on community systems.
Join the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and the University of Virginia for an inside look into the thinking and decision-making of leaders in key systems (ecology, social services, public health, public safety) in our community. This event is for everyone who wants to know more about how climate change will affect our community.
Attendees will learn about specific challenges associated with extreme rainfall, heat waves, and seasonal changes from the perspectives of several public servants and about upcoming opportunities to participate in preparation for changes we expect to see.
