Hosted by SWFL Climate & Community Initiative and powered by Hertz, this Summit is an exceptional event for our community.
The January 17 program will provide an inspiring and interactive program that will leave attendees motivated and ready to take action to protect our paradise:
- Our Climate Challenges – The afternoon begins with an overview of the current global and local climate challenges that we are experiencing. We will look at the impact on our economy, health, topography, and weather, as well as the existing public perceptions.
- Current SWFL Resilience Efforts – Many organizations and government agencies are working to strengthen climate resilience and reduce harmful emissions. Attendees will hear from those who have been on the frontlines of these statewide and local endeavors, as well as learn how we can each get involved and support these various efforts.
- Luncheon Panel – The afternoon luncheon panel will feature components of the rebuilding community. This session is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Collier County.
- Solutions: Community Sourced Climate Priorities – The afternoon will conclude with multiple table-top discussions. This interactive community exercise will be professionally facilitated and include the participation of residents, business and civic leaders, and regional elected officials. The purpose of this exercise is to prioritize our region’s actions for combating climate challenges and protecting our paradise. The documented results of these discussions will be shared with local government leaders for policy consideration.
