This is a reminder that the Islands Trust will be hosting, with Living Oceans, a sea level rise workshop on Monday, January 28, 2019 on Salt Spring Island (details below). This workshop is designed to help communities begin planning for the impacts of sea level rise. The goal is to share information on sea level rise by presenting a slide show on what sea level rise is, its impacts on communities and the potential adaptation measures available for communities with limited resources. It is also to make community members aware of the different steps needed to start the planning process through interactive exercises and to offer some tools and resources to help with the next steps.
