The Climate Action and Community Engagement micro-certificate allows you to gain the skills and understanding required to engage and train local climate champions. This program provides new skills and career opportunities to address the rapidly growing need for civic engagement in climate action in communities that are increasingly vulnerable to climate change extremes. This program aligns well with current BC Government and municipal priorities, such as the Clean BC Roadmap to 2030 and BC’s Climate Preparedness and Adaptation Strategy, which calls for greater capacity building and engagement to build community resilience against worsening heatwaves, wildfires, flooding and infrastructure disruptions. You will gain key competencies and practical skills in bridging ground-up climate action with local and regional climate policy.
