We're excited to share the news that the Adaptation Resilience Training (ART) program, an Alberta-focused set of introductory sessions that explore how professionals working in the province can raise their understanding about climate change and how to manage risks in community planning, is back! This program was launched in September 2021 and due to popular demand and feedback received, the core sessions will be hosted once again in March 2022.
Associated Engineering has been working with Alberta Environment and Parks to develop this free online training program for professionals interested in learning more about how to incorporate adaptation in their practice and build resilience in community planning.
Owen James and Garry Drachenberg will be among the speakers leading the March 2022 sessions.
- The Weather Isn't What It Used to Be: Separating Fact from Fiction about Climate Change (register here)
- Risks Around Us: Learning Which Climate Risks are Important to Manage and How (register here)
- Making Dollars and Sense of Climate Change: Economic Aspects of Climate Change (register here)
- But It's So Cold Outside! How to Speak Effectively About Climate Change (register here)
Note: Registration is required to attend these sessions.
These sessions will enable participants to build their knowledge and a foundation of climate change literacy that informs, guides, and supports discussions and decision-making. Alberta-based examples will be used to illustrate the concepts and demonstrate what is happening locally.
This project is funded by Alberta Environment and Parks and Natural Resources Canada.
