Sierra CAMP Fireside Chat: Communicating Climate Risk in Rural Regions

February 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Register Now

Join SBC’s Sierra CAMP and their partners at Community Adaptation Learning Exchange (CALE) on February 17 at 12 pm ET / 9 am PT for a fireside chat with Jessica Morse (Deputy Secretary for Forest and Wildland Resilience, California Natural Resources Agency) and Steve Frisch (President, Sierra Business Council). The conversation will be moderated by CALE’s Justine Shapiro-Kline.

About the Session:

Sierra Business Council’s Sierra CAMP is co-hosting this session in partnership with CALE to explore the common challenges around communicating climate risk in rural areas that stem from rural economic interests and hurdles, the relative isolation of unique communities, financial capacity, sociopolitical resistance to change, and other barriers.

This conversation will explore the catalysts that drive climate adaptation successes in rural California, including legislative incentives, the economic and cost-saving benefits of proactive climate action, and the urgency of unprecedented climate crises such as wildfires.

Registration is required. Register here.
