Unprecedented policy, regulatory, and funding decisions related to how we address climate change are being made at the state and federal level.  Whether you are in the public sector, work in industry, or provide environmental consulting services, climate change adaptation and mitigation impacts your work. The fourth annual EBC New England Climate Change and Resiliency Summit will provide an opportunity to learn how New England is addressing the challenges and opportunities associated with adapting to climate change and reducing vulnerability to climate change impacts, working to meet state and federal greenhouse gas reduction goals, and transitioning to a carbon-free economy.  For those in the environmental business community at the frontlines of adaptation and transition, the Summit is a forum to listen, learn, network and ask questions related to rapidly developing policy and programs connected to climate change.

Representatives from the six New England States will provide updates on their specific climate change plans, program priorities, and implementation strategies. The major focus will be on those key elements that are moving each state’s programs forward in preparation for the impact of climate change.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
