Program Description:

Rising temperatures, intense drought, and increased wildfire and flooding risks are on the horizon for communities across the state. Amid these prospects, the Flagstaff City-Coconino County Public Library and Flagstaff Sustainability Office teamed up to create the Climate Resilience Project, which provides programs aimed at bringing an intergenerational community group together to talk, learn, and take action on local climate and resilience issues. In this webinar you will find out what we have learned through our cross-departmental collaboration and how to implement locally-relevant and personally meaningful climate and resilience programming that addresses community concerns through a Community of Practice Framework.
