NORTHERN INNOVATION SYMPOSIUM:  CLIMATE CHANGE - ARE WE READY?

Concept:  The Northern Innovation Symposium 2019 will explore climate change in relation to rural communities.  Rural communities are in a particularly vulnerable position with the economic reality of being highly dependent on natural resources, many of which will be impacted by climate change.  Opportunities, and the obstacles responding to the challenges that are unique to rural Canada will be investigated.

The two-day Symposium, happening on September 27 and 28 will feature thought leaders from academic, governmental and private business. They will share their perspectives and knowledge in the areas of climate change and:

  1. Infrastructure

  2. Water Supply

  3. Economic Security

  4. Human Health

  5. Energy

  6. Ecosystems and Biodiversity

The Symposium will feature eight sessions, four sessions on September 27, and four sessions on September 28.  Each session will include a presentation from thought leaders.  Following the presentation there will be round table discussions with presenters and symposium attendees.   The symposium is a model of how rural communities may examine the opportunities and challenges that exist in their areas.
