Building Climate Resilience at ClimateWest Forum

Associated Engineering was pleased to support the 2nd annual ClimateWest Forum as a silver sponsor. The hybid conference was held on May 8th and 9th in Edmonton and brought together experts in a wide range of sectors and communities from across Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.

The two-day forum featured several sessions with prairie-specific climate experts, including our Jeff Zukiwsky, Senior Strategic Advisor. He participated as a panelist on day one, focused on youth perspectives on climate change risk and resilience on the prairies. Drawing on his extensive experience engaging stakeholders in climate risk and resilience planning, Jeff provided his insights on how practitioners working in the climate change field can better engage youth. Some key message from the panel discussion included the need to be proactive in engagement by both targeting youth specifically, and including youth participation on projects, for example through youth advisory committees.

A recording of the session is now available online.
