Over 250 people registered for the second Resilient Connecticut Summit that drew a diverse audience from municipalities, state and federal agencies, COGs, consultants, academics and interested public. Remarks from U.S. Senator Chris Murphy highlighted the importance and urgency of enacting climate mitigation and adaptation strategies from municipal to national levels. Professor Barry Hill’s keynote presentation provided thought-provoking insights on the relationship between environmental justice and climate justice and how attorney generals in several different climate change cases are seeking to address these issues. During the Summit participants could choose between one of three breakout sessions to hear from diverse speakers and ask questions on the following topics:
- Resilience Planning: Challenges, Opportunities and Interconnections
- Building Technical Capacity and Tools for Municipal Resilience
- Climate Adaptation Policy and Implementation
