(CS6-SS) The Climate Atlas of Canada: Science, Storytelling, and the Future of Adaptation (Workshop)
Moderator: Brett Huson
Presenters: Dr. Ian Mauro, Danny Blair, Laura Cameron and Duane Nicol
The Climate Atlas of Canada (www.climateatlas.ca) – the flagship project of the University of Winnipeg’s Prairie Climate Centre (PCC) – is increasingly a “go to” tool for Canadians seeking climate resources for public education and applied decision-making. In this interactive session, join the PCC and their partners to learn about the design of this tool and how it weaves together climate science and storytelling with community-based research, filmmaking and adaptation planning. A series of lightening talks will kick off the session, giving participants a high-level overview of the main themes, which will be followed by facilitated breakout sessions that will allow participants to engage more intimately with the PCC team to discuss the specifics of the initiative. Participants will have an opportunity to provide feedback on how the platform – as part of a larger continuum of tools – can be improved to support climate change adaptation locally, regionally and nationally.
