External Event
Oct 28 2019 - 7:30am to Oct 30 2019 - 2:30pm

The Livable Cities Forum: Building Better Communities through Resilience will take place October 28-30, 2019 at the Victoria Conference Centre, Victoria, British Columbia.

The eighth annual Livable Cities Forum is being hosted by the City of Victoria in partnership with ICLEI Canada, SHIFT Collaborative, and ACT (the Adaptation to Climate Change Team), SFU. The Forum is a boutique event widely known for its high-caliber interactive sessions and diverse speakers on climate change action.

The impacts of climate change are being felt across social, built, natural, and economic systems in complex, interconnected ways. Now, more than ever, collaborative community-level action is required to build sustainable, healthy, and equitable communities that are resilient to the risks posed by a changing climate and more frequent extreme weather.  Actions that transform and protect our cities must play a role in fostering livable, thriving communities. The 2019 Forum is designed to showcase the importance of taking this synergistic approach to climate change planning and implementation at the local level. Be a part of the conversation on how to build better, stronger, and more connected communities that are prepared for current and future impacts of climate change. Register here.
