Human Impacts of Climate Change in Manitoba and Beyond

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The social impacts of climate change are dynamic, deeply complex, and pose largely unfamiliar challenges. We already see impacts of climate change in our communities, health, and wellbeing; yet the full extent of its impact is still unknown.

This session will explore these social impacts through a lens of climate justice. Some of the specific ways we can build climate resilient communities in Manitoba will then be discussed. The best way to deal with your climate grief is to take action and this is a great opportunity to do just that and to make an impact. The workshop will then explore solutions to climate change---opportunities to lower carbon emissions and build community resilience to climate impacts while centring justice and equity.

Participants' input from this workshop will be included in the next version of the Road to Resilience. Participants should come away from this workshop with greater knowledge of and hope for what's possible in Manitoba.

Please note that the workshop Human Impacts of Climate Change in Manitoba and Beyond will start immediately after the morning smudge
