On December 7th, 2020, ACT Executive Director Deborah Harford gave a talk for the Still Moon Arts Society’s Shedding Light speaker series. The talk built on ACT’s recent work on equity and nature-based solutions, focusing on how low carbon resilience approaches can build equity.

Community members with the least capacity to respond to climate impacts are often also in situations with high vulnerabilities, such as more intense exposure to the urban heat island effect. This talk highlighted the urgent need for low carbon resilience approaches to climate change, and the application of an equity lens to climate action.
