Report: Virtual Community Engagement on Climate Change Adaptation

2022 – UBC Sustainability Scholars

This report details a project delivered by three UBC Sustainability Scholars with the objectives of equipping local governments with knowledge on successful climate change communications and public engagement tools; and raising awareness about climate risks and adaptive actions to the general public.

The project had two primary outputs: a best practice overview and a virtual engagement pilot project. The best practice overview provides a package of information for local governments looking to lead public engagement on climate impacts and adaptation. It offers considerations for climate change communication, a description of 7 relevant virtual engagement tools, and 5 case studies of successful engagements.

Knowledge from the best practice overview was used to inform the design of the pilot project, a hybrid (online/in-person) engagement workshop on climate change awareness and personal flood preparedness in the City of Dawson Creek, BC. This workshop was developed in collaboration with a City staff partner and carried out in late June, 2022.
