Climate Fundamentals Academy:
South Florida Regional Workshop (Part 1 of 3)
City of Fort Lauderdale Community Center (Fort Lauderdale, FL)

  ACCO is offering a 2-day training academy to provide curriculum on topics including understanding climate science and variability, identifying climate hazards, conducting vulnerability assessments, leveraging data and tools, and the fundamentals of adaptation planning.

This training activity will prove valuable to decision makers across sectors and professional roles desiring to be better informed of climate change and sea level rise implications, and to develop strategies for responding to those risks and opportunities. The training, which leverages a cohort learning process and incorporates interactive exercises, will provide substantial value to participants and enable them to play a more active role in integrating sensible climate change strategies into organizational and community planning.

This academy is designed to incorporate multiple curriculum requirements for the Climate Governance Certificate offered under the CCO Certification Program.

3rd Annual:
Rising Seas Summit

RisingSeasSummit

 

The 3rd annual Rising Seas Summit brings professionals together to highlight the interrelationships between sea level rise, climate change and extreme events. Last year’s marquee event held during Climate Week New York was attended by nearly 300 professionals across sectors. As the recent findings related to the Antarctic ice shelves cast clearer light on rates of sea level rise, the coastal ecosystems and inland water systems are at even greater risk, and the recent catastrophic impacts from hurricanes and typhoons have made the need to plan for adaptation a clear and present necessity. These emerging and increasing environmental challenges require that stakeholders share knowledge and work together to reduce and mitigate environmental, economic and social degradation induced by climate change.
