On Friday, I was a panelist at the Designing Resilience Conference held in the Peter Lougheed Hall at the University of Alberta. Supported by European Centre of Excellence, the German Consulate in Vancouver, The Vice-President (Research) Office, and the Kule Institute for Advanced Study, this one-day event brought Canadian and German experts together to discuss some key questions:
How can climate change policy be designed to be resilient, making it immune to political and economic shocks?
What are the consequences of climate change policy for communities, and what role can cities play in its implementation?
Lots of great conversation and input. A great day!
