NELSON, BC: The West Kootenay EcoSociety has completed a series of community conversations on the links between climate change, income security and community resilience in the West Kootenay region of the provinces.

Organized in partnership with the Green Resilience Project, the conversations aimed to identify and document a wide range of perspectives on what community members need to build resilience and encourage local action on all the aspects of the climate crisis.

Climate change and income insecurity are two of the most urgent challenges facing BC residents. The conversation encouraged community members to discuss the connections between these issues, brainstorm solutions and identify what they need to put them into action.

Details from the conversation will be shared in the Green Resilience Project’s final report, to be published in April 2022.

The Green Resilience Project is managed and delivered by Energy Mix Productions, Basic Income Canada Network, Coalition Canada Basic Income – Revenu de base, Basic Income Canada Youth Network, national experts and local partners. Funding is generously provided by Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Climate Action and Awareness Fund.

West Kootenay EcoSociety is a non-profit community-driven organization that brings together local residents to protect the natural environment while building just, equitable, healthy and livable communities in the West Kootenay region.
