Climate Leaders Institute

About Climate Leaders Institute

The Climate Leaders Institute is a two-day workshop expressly designed to help British Columbia mayors, councillors, and regional district directors confidently lead or support bold climate action in their communities. 

CLI moves beyond a traditional conference setting so participants gain the tools they need to translate their inspiration and political capital into real world, community-specific climate solutions. This is achieved through a combination of small break out groups along with presentations designed and delivered by colleagues, leading professionals and inspirational speakers.

What CLI 2017 participants said:

"Excellent event. The future is coming fast and this conference is on top of what elected officials need to know to meet it."

"The small intimate environment allows the opportunity to really go in-depth to find the right climate solutions for our communities."

"This was an incredibly useful event. I have taken home many valuable lessons and much knowledge about successful projects in other communities across BC."

The second Climate Leaders Institute will be held at the Radisson Hotel, Vancouver Airport in Richmond, BC, from November 7-8, 2019.
