Address the local implications of climate change.
The Annapolis County Climate Action Summit 2019 will take place on Saturday, November 9 in Cornwallis Park. Following the lead of the United Nations Climate Summit in New York, this free event will connect residents, businesses, organizations and municipal government in the County of Annapolis, addressing the local implications of climate change, and the individual and collective actions that need to be taken.
Participants will learn, empower and challenge one another through presentations, panel discussions, breakout sessions, a youth panel and a moderated community forum. The Summit will explore how communities in the County of Annapolis can achieve the best possible prospects of safety, resilience, dignity and opportunity in the face of our changing climate.
The impacts of climate change are having real consequences on people’s lives, as seen most recently with Hurricane Dorian. Many people and organizations are already making small and large changes to help combat the climate crisis.
