Okanagan Climate Hub Welcome Launch

January 23, 2021 | 10:00 am - 11:00 pm

Hello Climate Changemakers!

Please join us on January 23rd  at 10 AM PT for the official Okanagan Climate Hub kickoff event!

Details below:

Over the past month, a flurry of work by dedicated individuals from your communities has brought together an exciting new nucleus for climate action activities spanning the Okanagan. As part of the nationwide Climate Hub Network, the Okanagan Climate Hub is a volunteer-led, non-profit organization that unites individuals, youth leaders and organizations throughout the Okanagan for effective, cooperative action on climate change mitigation and adaptation locally and throughout the Okanagan Valley. Among other functions, our website will have a simple data entry form where organizations and community members (including you!) can self-register themselves and their projects, while visitors of the website can pursue opportunities to partner on published projects.

Our current focus is to populate our new website with climate action projects that are ongoing or just getting started, as far up the valley as Salmon Arm and as far south as Osoyoos. However, there is no limit to how the hub can function for us in the Valley, and our goal is to build this as an action-oriented, community owned exchange that benefits everyone.

To celebrate this launch and to invite your participation with our new website, we invite you to attend our Welcome Launch held over Zoom on Saturday, January 23rd, at 10am. During this time we will introduce our hub leaders and provide training on how to use the website as well as answer questions and discuss how you or your organization can participate.

Please see below for the agenda and zoom registration details.

  • (1) Welcome and Introductions
