Climate Change and the Economy in the Context of COVID-19
April 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:15 pm
Apr 16, 2020 1:00 PM to 3:15 PM
Join the Capital Region Climate Readiness Collaborative (CRC) for our first ever virtual workshop (“virtualshop”) on April 16th from 1:00-3:15PM. We will discuss how COVID-19 is impacting our world, particularly the potential interplay between the economic impacts of COVID-19 and the need for public and private sector climate action, resilience building, and adaptation funding. We will also discuss the state’s priorities for climate moving forward and hear from community leaders about how they continued to fight for climate and reach underserved communities during a pandemic.
Now, more than ever, it is essential for partners across our communities to plan, coordinate, and work together on a regional scale. For this reason, and to inspire cross-topic discussions, we encourage participants to invite colleagues from other departments or organizations to register and join CRC in this important virtual discussion.
COVID-19 is showing what really matters is the same for all of us: the health and safety of our family, our friends, our loved ones, and our communities. These same priorities are at the heart of our shared goal to build a regional foundation to ensure our region is healthy, sustainable, and resilient in the face of a changing climate.
Register today to continue our work to meet our shared challenges!

We strongly encourage public agency staff (cities, counties, regional agencies, special districts, etc.), elected officials, non-profit and labor organizations, community-based organizations, private consulting firms, advocacy groups, students, and individuals interested in learning about climate action in the Capital Region to attend this engaging and informative event.
