Leaping to Solutions Climate Change Symposium

February 29 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$50 – $60

Climate change is a topic of daily conversation these days. Scientists have well-documented evidence that human activity, starting with the dawn of the industrial revolution, is the driving force behind these changes. During our November 2018 symposium, we touched on the topic of climate change and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Attendees genuinely appreciated the chance to hear the facts and gain a better understanding of climate change basics.
Based on that feedback, we’re focusing this symposium solely on climate change. Come join us on Leap Day, Saturday, February 29, 2020 to expand on the basics and have the chance to hear from local officials on how cities in the Tidewater area are preparing to mitigate the challenges associated with sea level rise. 

As an added bonus that day, Elizabeth River Project will host their 2nd Annual Youth Resilience Expo. See how students in grades K-12 envision solutions to address flooding, promote resilience actions and reduce their carbon footprint at their schools. We’ve built in extra time during lunch for symposium attendees to enjoy these innovative solutions.

4 CBLP CEUs are available
