Our Forests: A Community Conversation
|Organizer||Salt Spring Community Alliance|
|Date||Monday January 27|
|Event Length||2 hours|
The Community Alliance invites the community to an exploration of the vital role that forests play in our adaptation to climate change. As we enter this new decade, the climate crisis has become more than a distant possibility - the effects are appearing now and we are experiencing serious shifts in all aspects of life. Given how forests play a crucial role in mitigating the impacts of climate change, and protecting our water supply, we are inviting discussion on this question:
How can we have a conversation that builds unity and resilience for our community that also recognizes the variety of our relationships with, and dependence on, the forests?
A resilient and bonded community can stand strong in the face of climate change. Please come to this community meeting to learn more, to listen and to share your own thoughts and experiences regarding the forests of Salt Spring. Join together with others to take action through existing projects or project ideas that emerge in this meeting.
