Climate Advocacy In the Time of COVID

September 22, 2020 | 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

The current pandemic has exposed vulnerabilities and disparities in our healthcare system and the health of our environment that have broad implications.  This program will support local community and civic leaders in discussing the links between climate, COVID and our health, as well as opportunities to act and advocate for change within Utah and the US.

The training will equip civic leaders and community advocates with knowledge and resources to speak and act on climate change and solutions. It will include information on the connections between COVID and climate as regards health impacts, as well as current legislation and action for climate mitigation and resilience that you can take in Utah. This information will help you engage your colleagues, the public, voters and policymakers to inspire climate solutions that help protect our families and communities now, and ensure a prosperous, just, and secure future.
