Registration Deadline Nov. 17 – a link to join will be sent to registrants by Total Webcasting a day before the event

CIRCA will host the second annual Resilient Connecticut Summit on November 20, 2020 as a half-day, virtual event that’s open to the public and free to attend. Participants will learn about recent project activities, participate in breakouts, and hear from keynote speaker Barry E. Hill, Adjunct Professor at the Vermont Law School’s Environmental Law Institute.  Professor Hill will present on the topic of Attorney Generals “Addressing Instances of Environmental/Climate Injustice Through Climate Change Litigation”. This presentation is timely as the Connecticut Office of the Attorney General filed a complaint against ExxonMobil in September.

See the Summit website for more details. When registering for the Summit, participants can choose between one of three breakout sessions to hear from diverse speakers on the following topics (note that while these breakout sessions will be concurrent, they will all be recorded and a link provided for later viewing):
  1. Resilience Planning: Challenges, Opportunities and Interconnections
  2. Building Technical Capacity and Tools for Resilience
  3. Climate Adaptation Policy and Implementation

    This event is free to attend, but registration is required. Please REGISTER for this event by November 17, 2020.  A link to join this virtual event will be sent to registrants by Total Webcasting in advance.

        Funding for this project is provided by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development through the Community Block Grant National Disaster Recovery Program, as administered by the State of Connecticut’s Department of Housing.
