The Ontario Climate Consortium is excited to announce our upcoming Climate Data Training Session for Engineers, Planners and Decision Makers! Come and learn from fellow engineers, planners and academic experts on how to use climate data to address climate change.
If you’re interested in scoping climate change into a project, incorporating it into your work or have wondered if you may be responsible for addressing it down the road – this event is for you! OCC’s Climate Data Training Session will provide a great opportunity for peer-to-peer learning, and to hear and discuss tangible examples of climate change planning and engineering studies.
In the morning, you will hear from Kathleen O’Neill from the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change who will provide a view of Ontario’s critical and evolving climate policy context, followed by a presentation by McMaster University Centre for Climate Change and Risk Sciences International (RSI) on what climate data is, past and future trends, and how to interpret it. The afternoon will feature two streams of presentations for specific audiences: an Engineering Stream (Chair: David Lapp, Engineers Canada) and a Planning Stream (Chair: Dr. Laura Taylor, York University). Come and learn from Ontario municipalities, Conservation Authorities, Ontario’s Ministries, Academics, Toronto Hydro and many more!
This event is funded by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC). Registration is free, but spots are limited so be sure to sign up today. Please select one stream (engineering or planning) on checkout.
