Virtual: Hybrid Event ‘2021 Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference’

May 10 - May 12

Join the Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference from May 10-12 and attend in-person at the Durham Convention Center or virtually. The safety and wellbeing of conference attendees is the number one priority. The conference has been monitoring the ongoing pandemic closely and will adapt plans for the 2021 CCRC accordingly. For those hoping to attend in‑person the Durham Convention Center has provided information about their cleaning and safety protocols.

The impacts of extreme weather events and evidence of climate change are continuing to grow. So too is our understanding of the challenges we face, collectively, in adapting to these changes. Building resilience — the ability to adjust easily to or recover from a stress or change — is an important step in preparing to successfully address current and future pressures.

Now in its fourth convening, the Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference seeks to assist by providing a place to share experiences and knowledge about opportunities, resources, and local initiatives across a range of professions and regional experts. Although research findings will be shared, this conference is intended to foster real-world solutions to climate adaptation in the Carolinas.

The conference goals are to: 

  • Support on-the-ground climate resilience efforts by providing managers and regional experts with an opportunity to share lessons learned and discuss resources and tools for incorporating climate information into their work.
  • Contribute to the development of a climate information network for the Carolinas.
  • Provide a venue for practitioners, resource people, and researchers to share information about current activities, plans, and opportunities for collaboration.
  • Register here to learn more about attending.
