CLIc - CLI in the Community 2017
Building on the success of the 2017 Climate Leadership Institute, the BC Municipal Climate Leadership Council (BCMCLC) is bringing in depth sessions into communities.
The first 2018 CLIc workshop is CLIc Richmond: “Transitioning to High Impact Leadership on Climate Action”
This session is for locally elected officials attending the 2018 LGLA Leadership Forum at the Radisson Hotel Vancouver Airport and will be held February 2 from 1:30-4:00 pm.
The workshop begins with an inspiring presentation from Mayor Richard Walton of the District of North Vancouver, who will discuss the importance and essence of leadership on climate change and his professional experience.
Presentations from a panel of Community Energy Managers from Richmond, New Westminster and the City of North Vancouver will then share their experiences in using a variety of tools and emerging solutions for energy and climate action such as BC Energy Step Code implementation, building retrofits, solar installations, and electric vehicle strategies to lay the foundation for deeper discussion on a few key topics of interest to participants.
Small breakout group sessions will include a round table sharing of current and future leadership challenges faced by Councils and Boards in BC communities as well as facilitated discussions on 1-2 key topics identified by attendees.
The workshop will end with a closing exercise that identifies individual next steps/priorities for climate action leadership. Registration is required as seating is limited. Click below to register or to email Janice Keyes with any questions.
