Overview

Mountain town and resort community planners are faced with unique situations with regard to resilience and enduring the results of climate change. Many communities are in and/or adjacent to environmentally sensitive spaces prone to wildfire, flooding, and other weather related events. The economies of amenity communities – vacation destinations, second home communities, etc. – rely upon a natural environment continually under threat from climate change. The roundtable is intended to be a peer exchange regarding emerging trends and best practices for creating resilient communities in the face of a changing climate.

 What are the specific training objectives? What do you want the attendees to learn from this event?  Specific training objectives include:

 

●      Sharing of lessons learned in mountain town and resort communities

●      Discussion of best practices

●      Identification of communities that have implemented innovative strategies

●      Provision of the opportunity to organize post-Summit collaboration to develop new solutions to mountain town and resort issues.
