Roundtable: Communicating Summer Climate Impacts

Tuesday, June 14, 2016 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Online Webinar

 Communicating Summer Climate Impacts, a roundtable discussion on how to engage with audiences around increasingly frequent heat waves, extended drought and wildfire risk.

Summer is almost here and with continued warming comes climate impacts that affect the health and safety of our families and communities, especially seniors, children and low-income populations. Unusually hot and dry conditions are already setting the stage for wildfires like the tragic blaze in Fort McMurray, Alberta. As temperatures rise, how can communicators illustrate these risks and the need to prepare for extreme heat and wildfire
