Communities adapting to climate change

February 18, 2020

CBC’s BC Today interviewed Stephen Sheppard, a 2017 Wall Solutions grant recipient. Sheppard discussed the drastic effects of climate change for Metro Vancouver, Vancouver will likely see heat waves, lower air quality, forest fires, and flooding.  To convey the magnitude of the effects climate change will have, Sheppard said Vancouver will likely see summers similar to those of present-day San Diago during the second half of this century.  Sheppard also discussed steps toward the adaptation of the changing climate. 

While at the Institute Stephen Sheppard’s research focused on youth engagement on climate solutions.
