UC ANR to hold symposium on climate change policy and environmental justice Oct. 7-8
UC ANR employees interested in incorporating responses to climate change into their programs are invited to a symposium Oct. 7-8 at Elkus Ranch in Half Moon Bay. The focus will be on the national dialog around contemporary federal climate-change policy as it relates to agriculture and natural resource management.
“We see this event as one that will help our colleagues reflect on our work and generate new ideas for climate change- and environmental justice-related extension activities,” said Clare Gupta, UCCE specialist in human and community development and one of the event organizers. “The symposium will provide a space to learn about the current climate-change policy landscape, and what a viable and just federal climate-change policy might entail.”
- What are different policy strategies for addressing climate change in the realms of agriculture, food systems and natural resource management?
- How do these strategies incorporate concerns over equity and justice?
- What are the implications for UCANR's involvement?
- Our keynote and panel speakers will speak to current federal climate change efforts, possible ways forward, and potential roles for UCCE.
The symposium is free. Travel funds are not available. To register, go to https://ucanr.edu/survey/survey.cfm?surveynumber=28169.
