Livable Cities Forum: Managing Local Climate Risks

The seventh annual Livable Cities Forum is being hosted as a Pop-Up Event in the City of St. John’s, Newfoundland. The Forum is a boutique national event widely known for its high-caliber sessions and diverse speakers on climate change action in Canada.

The 2018 Pop-Up is a chance for us to move the Forum around the country and offer a specific focus on getting started with managing climate risk. Combining plenaries, panel discussions, and workshops, this one day event will be a chance to discuss climate change adaptation and resilience with a focus on collaborative vulnerability and risk assessment, managing climate risks, and mainstreaming climate change across operations. As this year’s focus is managing climate risk locally, we warmly welcome the participation of municipalities, sustainability practitioners, provincial representatives, community service providers, emergency management professionals, businesses, and private sector agencies from the region.
