Reimagining Climate Adaptation Summit
Future Earth Australia, in partnership with the Sydney Environment Institute (University of Sydney) and the Institute for Culture and Society (Western Sydney University), is bringing experts from research, business, practice, decision making and communities together to look forward and set out a clear agenda for climate adaptation as we reduce our emissions. Adaptation and resilience must be undertaken with respect to enabling a just transition to climate sustainability for all Australians.
After the devastating bushfires of last summer, it is clear that Australia needs an evidence-based policy response to the range of emerging threats posed by environmental change. We welcome the Prime Minister’s comments earlier in 2020 on the need to focus on resilience and adaptation for all Australians—and argue it must be done in a substantive, inclusive, community-based manner.
The Summit will be hosted in interactive webinar format via Zoom. We welcome you to bring questions for the speakers and panels through the Q&A function. Registration is free, however we invite voluntary donations to enable Future Earth Australia’s important convening work.
