Climate Change Resiliency: engage, innovate and change Monday, February 24, 2020 | 9:00 am – 4:00 pm Call for Presentations Deadline: Dec. 6th
Join us for our 3rd biennial symposium on the Green-Duwamish Watershed as we focus on not only planning for a sustainable but a resilientfuture in the era of Climate Change. As we gain a deeper understanding of the impacts of Climate Change, how we address its challenges and find opportunities will shape our region’s future. The symposium will focus on not only on the challenges but how through engagement, innovation and adaption, we are meeting the challenges.
We invite people involved in conservation, restoration, research, urban planning, education, community engagement, business, and human services to submit a presentation proposal highlighting your project or program in the Green-Duwamish Watershed and its shoreline sub-watersheds. This is an opportunity to connect with others involved in improving the ecological and community health across the watershed for our future.
The symposium is a one-day event, giving exposure and promoting the broad and diverse work being done throughout the watershed and the opportunity to network with individuals across fields (technical and non-technical), locations, cultures, organizations and settings. All the presentations are given in one large room, thus enabling everyone attending exposure to topics and individuals not within their normal purview.
This symposium is an opportunity for you to:
Share your project/program and experience with others
Learn what people are doing in the Green-Duwamish Watershed: –
Current projects and programs
Present and future challenges
Results: Successes and Failures
Information on opportunities and resources
Future plans and needs
Network with others, building new relationships across the watershed
The forum is for professionals, academics, community members and stakeholders to exchange information regarding the watershed, crossing all professions and sectors. Our past symposiums have sold out with the maximum of 250 attendees, from across King County and the region.
