Climate Change Forum Series Presentations: Community Forum & Councillor Forum

Climate Change is a highly publicised global phenomenon that relies heavily on science to inform the community and government decisions. The SCCG Member Councils identified an important action to address the current and potential impacts of climate change. Two Climate Change Forum's were held, aimed at addressing climate change issues and needs for 1) the Community and 2) Councillors in Local Government.

The Community Forum held on 23 August 2009 aimed to assist with the presentation of the most up-to-date climate science and climate scenario information. Action orientated case studies and alternative ways of seeing, thinking and acting in a world affected by climate change were presented. Participants were then able to hear details about innovative and successful community actions from around the region. All these viewpoints were selected to provide community participants with a total perspective of the issue, implications, possible actions and an opportunity to form partnerships with other participants. The content packed proceedings also included an opportunity to workshop personal concerns and to develop a personal climate change inspired action plan.

The Councillors Forum held on 30 August 2009 presented Local Government with specific climate adaptation and mitigation case studies, various business case scenarios for acting in a climate conscious world, an in-depth study of climate change risk assessment and the unique techniques used, and outcomes from community consultation.

Both Forums showcased the most up-to-date climate science and the SCCG's Eureka award winning method for assessing regional climate change vulnerability in cities.
