Volunteer Opportunity to Serve on the Advisory Committee to Develop Training on Climate Change Resilience for Professional Planners

The Climate Risk Institute (CRI), in partnership with the Canadian Institute of Planners, is excited to announce a new training program that will provide additional in-depth climate change adaptation and resilience training for Professional Planners in the Prairies. In order to guide the development of this new training content, a regionally based Advisory Committee is being organized.  The new training program will build on existing content, including ongoing initiatives in Ontario, Manitoba, and Alberta. 

This new initiative will lead to training modules customized for Planners working in the Prairies. It will integrate local and regional information on climate impacts, adaptation solutions, policy frameworks, and help build skills in key areas of need such as engagement and communication on climate. The total time commitment for Advisors is expected to be approximately 16 hours, including participation in three workshops and the independent review of materials. Participation on the Advisory Committee is eligible to be counted towards annual Continuous Professional Learning credits.    

APPI is seeking Regulated Members in good standing, who are interested in serving on the Climate Change and Resilience Training Advisory Committee.  Please submit a brief expression of interest including your name, contact information and a brief description of your experience or interest in climate change adaptation and resilience and/or the development of professional extension and training content, by June 21, 2021, via email to [email protected].  

APPI is committed to equity and diversity on positions of influence and leadership within the Institute. As such, APPI welcomes responses to this call for volunteers from individuals who identify as First Nations, Inuit, Métis, LGBTQ2S+, persons with disabilities, women and other marginalized or disadvantaged groups.

This initiative is supported by Natural Resource Canada’s Building Regional Adaptation Capacity and Expertise (BRACE) program.
