NCC Urbanism Lab: Adapting to Extremes

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - 18:30 to 20:30

Topic: Climate change projections and urban adaptation

Climate change is compelling communities around the world to rethink how they build for the future. Part of this process involves mapping out how the climate will affect landscapes and critical infrastructure in the near term and short term. This Urbanism Lab event explores how cities are using climate forecasting to make themselves more resilient to sudden and gradual changes in the natural environment.

Speakers:

Ewa Jackson, Managing Director, ICLEI Canada
Dr. Pierre Gosselin, Medical consultant, Climate and Health, INSPQ
Dan Sandink, Director of Research, Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction
