On June 2, 2021, from 10:30am – 12:30pm PST, join Royal Roads University for an interdisciplinary panel discussion, What Does It Mean To Be a Climate Action Leader?, including ACT Executive Director Deborah Harford as a panelist.

Leadership in climate action requires an understanding of climate risk and resilience, climate justice, and the competencies necessary to design and implement strategic, just, collaborative, and holistic strategies to reduce climate related risks, vulnerabilities, and inequities.

What does it mean to be a climate action leader in the context of this urgent and escalating crisis? What leadership characteristics and orientations are needed to address the complexity of climate change (intersecting economic, social, cultural and political risks and impacts) and how can we proceed in ways that contribute to decolonization and social justice?

Moderated by Dr. Robin Cox, program head for the Graduate Diploma and Master of Arts in Climate Action Leadership programs, this interdisciplinary panel will explore the urgent need and opportunity for strategic, holistic and just climate action leadership.

All registrants will receive a copy of the webinar recording, even if unable to attend.

Panelists include:

Deborah Harford – Executive Director, ACT (The Adaptation to Climate Change Team) SFU

Ewa Jackson – Managing Director, ICLEI Canada

Adam Lerner – Founder & Sustainability Assessments Lead of Solvable

Roger Street – Adaptation Expert, Canadian Institute for Climate Choices
