Arizona State UniversityArizona State University’s School of Sustainability is hosting a new five-webinar series — “Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience Leadership Series.” The series is co-hosted by the American Society of Adaptation Professionals and the University of the District of Columbia’s College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences.

The free series will introduce participants to climate change adaptation and resilience leaders working in policy, innovation, and technology, and climate justice and social equity from across various scales of government and other sectors. These experts will share cutting-edge examples of how they are putting effective innovation and equitable climate adaptation into practice.

The first webinar will discuss Climate Adaptation Policy at the State and Local Level. Deliberate, proactive climate action is a deviation from business-as-usual and requires boldly challenging the status quo. At the heart of climate action are individuals: courageous leaders who may come from any part of society. Climate action requires revising, or creating new, law, policy, or regulation to incentive adaptation action and penalize maladaptation. In this webinar, hear from individuals who exemplify visionary leadership and are moving their jurisdictions forward through groundbreaking climate policy.
