Reflect back on the 2019 Tribal Resilience and Climate Change Symposium, hosted by the Washoe Tribe Environmental Protection Department, in today's blog!
In September 2019, the Washoe Tribe Environmental Protection Department hosted the Tribal Resilience and Climate Change Symposium. Climate Science Alliance Director Dr. Amber Pairis participated in their Tribal Climate Change Symposium, speaking in the “Science of Climate” and “Outreach & Engagement” plenaries.
While there are hundreds of different Tribal communities, many are facing similar challenges. In coming together over this three-day event, Climate Science Alliance, Tribal partners, and many other attendees from across the country were able to join in discussion and reflection for planning resilient communities in the face of climate change. The Climate Science Alliance team was grateful for the opportunity to support the event and share more about our work.
We encourage you to learn more about the topics discussed at the Symposium, including current challenges, ideas for increasing Tribal resilience, and the hope that comes from working together to safeguard our communities. Watch the recap video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqnbnRVWMcs.
Thank you to the Washoe Tribe Environmental Protection Department for hosting this important gathering. We also honor Norm Harry and his leadership, vision, and the legacy he leaves behind.
