The Heat Dome, one year later
June 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
You don’t have to look far to know that extreme climate events are here to stay. Unprecedented and devastating wildfires and floods, noticeable changes in weather and seasons, and extreme heat events have affected the lives of millions of people. The economic, health, and social impacts of these events are enormous. Last year provided many lived examples of this including the devastating effects of last summer’s heat wave, and the heat dome on British Columbians and all Canadians.
Join Royal Roads University on June 28th, 2022 – the anniversary of the hottest day in 2021 – for a webinar exploring the lessons learned from the heat dome, and the changes we need to make to address future heat events. The webinar will bring together climate and heat dome researchers, emergency health practitioners, and social justice advocates in a dynamic discussion of where the province is at, one year later, and where we need to get to if we are to be collectively resilient moving forward.
