On July 11th and 12th, 2016, more than 100 people from across the province came together to participate in PHABC’s Summer School. The focus of the summer school was “Promoting Health and Sustainability: The Case of Climate Change and Energy Use.”
Four sites were linked via video conference: University of Victoria, University of British Columbia, University of British Columbia- Okanogan, and University of Northern British Columbia. At each of the four sites, local working groups were formed to brainstorm and map local climate change impacts (anticipated or actual) and opportunities for mitigation and resilience building related to three key areas with health co-benefits:
- Clean/ low carbon energy systems;
- Low meat/ sustainable diets; and
- Sustainable community design.
