Advance: Building Resilient Communities

Canada’s National Adaptation Strategy (NAS) serves as the foundation for supporting our communities as they increase resilience to the impacts of climate change. In this interactive and outcomes-focused workshop, you’ll share the key learnings and actions needed for building resilient communities. Using the NAS, we will determine the priorities of different stakeholder groups, the roles required to implement targets, and will provide direction on what we need to start doing now.

Closing Plenary Moving Forward: Reaching Beyond Sustainability to Regeneration

At the GLOBE Forum 2024 Closing Plenary, we’ll look ahead to the next steps needed to create a regenerative future. From key outcomes and insights, to how we’ll show up ready for action at GLOBExCHANGE in 2025, participants will come together one last time to celebrate our community’s commitment to reaching beyond sustainability to regeneration.

Our Closing Plenary will kick off with a special cultural performance from the Musqueum Warriors, followed by opening remarks from BC Regional Chief Terry Teegee. Chief Teegee will provide his perspectives on how we can work together across governments, business, finance, and civil society to drive action for a more sustainable future.

From Conflict to Collaboration: Working Across Difference to Advance Sustainability

Sustainability often involves competing priorities and diverse perspectives. This session explores how we can be guided by nature and work across differences to create a regenerative future together. Join this armchair dialogue to learn how to navigate uncomfortable ‘‘tough conversations,” how critical diversity in thought is to advancing sustainability goals, and how we can feel empowered to champion these conversations in this space and beyond.
