The movement to build our climate resilience has powerful implications for the future of our region – from how we deal with the increasing threats of climate disruption to how we, as a community, not only recover but prepare to thrive in the face of climate change. Sustainable Seattle will convene the third in a series of conferences under the banner of our Pacific Northwest Resilience Challenge in January – the 2018 Climate Resilience Summit.

This conference will focus on issues of equity and how we can best support communities on the front lines of climate disruption. We invite you to join us as we examine the unique challenges and opportunities of preparing for the impacts of climate change.
