Meeting: Improving environmental health of communities and ecosystems, July 10-11 (New Orleans)
2012 CEC Council Session: Improving environmental health of communities and ecosystems
This year’s meeting will feature two public sessions with Council members on July 11: one, a discussion with community leaders taking action on environmental issues in their cities and towns; the other, a public forum dialog with university students and others interested in North America’s environmental issues. This forum will be open for those who may participate in New Orleans or online via live blog and social media networks.
Joint Public Advisory Committee Forum
Prior to these sessions, the CEC’s Joint Public Advisory Committee will host a special forum and workshop on community and ecosystem resiliency. Participants will tackle questions related to environmental justice, ecosystem conservation, urban planning and adaptation to climate change. Your ideas and innovative approaches will provide models for how communities across North America can take action.
North American Environment Fair
New this year, the North American Environment Fair will be a chance to meet some of the CEC’s community-based project partners, including grant recipients under the North American Partnership for Environmental Community Action (NAPECA). The fair will be an opportunity to enquire, network, and interact with partners and CEC information, including maps and data from the North American Environmental Atlas. Don’t miss this chance to find out more about cooperative environmental initiatives across Canada, Mexico and the United States.
The meeting will be webcast live, from 9:00 am on July 10-11 (Central Daylight Time). Simultaneous translation into Spanish, French and English will be available throughout the event.
The Nineteenth Regular Session of the CEC Council and Joint Public Advisory Committee Regular Session will be webcast live, together with a virtual discussion forum for submitting questions and comments.
