Corner Brook Climate Change Adaptation Workshop – January 19th
The City would like to encourage residents to attend an upcoming workshop on climate change related issues. This workshop is part of the pilot phase of a project, Enhancing Community Adaptation to Climate Change, which involves six communities in Newfoundland, including Corner Brook. It takes place Wednesday Jan 19th, 2011 from 9-11:30 AM (daytime session) and 7-9 PM (evening session) at the Pepsi Centre, Conference Room #1.
The workshop will be led by a facilitator who will help guide workshop participants through examining concerns, opportunities and adaptation options related to slope movement issues and climate change. During the workshop, participants will be asked to think about and discuss slope movement issues facing Corner Brook. This includes the location of slope issues; vulnerable residents, infrastructure and economic sectors; environmental impacts; and adaptation choices and priorities.
This workshop is being held as part of a project partnership between the City of Corner Brook, the Department of Geography at Memorial University, the Department of Environment and Conservation, Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador, and Professional Municipal Administrators.
