Conference: Preparing People for Climate Change in California
Wednesday | January 24, 2018 | 8:00 am — Thursday | January 25, 2018 | 5:00 pm
The California Endowment’s Oakland Conference Center | 2000 Franklin St, Oakland, CA 94612
From high levels of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), to job and financial struggles, racism and other forms of inequity and injustice, traumatic stress is epidemic today. Climate change will aggravate all of these existing adversities, and add many new ones as well. Yet, California is leading the U.S. in finding innovative new ways to address personal, family, and community traumas–and on reducing carbon emissions. This conference will show how, by breaking down silos and connecting these issues, California can also lead the nation in building widespread levels of personal and psycho-social-spiritual resilience for the hardships generated by rising temperatures and produce multiple benefits for individuals, families, communities, and our planet’s climate.Visit Event Website >>
