Workshop: Local tools for national climate outcomes
June 2, 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Canada has committed to meeting the targets laid out in the Paris climate agreement. To get there, it's going to need to scale up the local green innovation already unfolding in our communities today. In this workshop, you'll hear the latest on Canada's climate commitments and how they impact your municipality. You'll also learn about specific tools you can use to meet your own local climate objectives - from mitigation to adaptation - and you'll gain important insights on how your municipality can tackle its climate opportunities and challenges.
