An opportunity for Manchester-based practitioners to preview the new and updated Climate Just website
Climate change has the potential to increase inequality and disadvantage in the UK. Local authorities and other organisations working on climate change, or working with vulnerable people and communities, have a key role to play in responding to this challenge.
The Climate Just website has been developed to provide evidence to support local action. Since its launch in February 2015 it has attracted more than 20,000 users. Together they have made extensive use of the site’s free to access maps, case studies, evidence and other resources. At the core of the site is a consideration of what we can do to make local adaptation responses both effective and more socially responsible.
This event is an exciting opportunity for Manchester practitioners to attend a local preview of the new and updated Climate Just website. Our revised site will be launched nationally in February 2018 and this event will be the first in a set of national workshops. We invite existing users from across Greater Manchester to participate, but we also welcome practitioners with little or no knowledge of the site who are keen to learn more.
The event is a chance to get a head-start on how to use our new resources to shape climate adaptation plans and actions. The new resources will include free access to data and findings from a new UK-wide flood risk analysis project.
The sessions will be interactive so that researchers can gather views on the existing content and on future plans. Refreshments will be available from 10:30, lunch is at 1:00 and there will be a 2 hour guided hands-on session at 1:30.
Places at the event are limited and places need to be booked in advance.
