Climate Action Planning (Part 2): Disaster Preparedness and Community Resilience
Part of a series, this webinar with the Sustainable Libraries Initiative will feature library practitioners on how they have prepared both libraries and communities for the impacts of climate change.
This panel discussion will feature practitioners with deep experience in preparing both their libraries, and their communities, for the impacts of climate change. Our panel will speak to traditional disaster preparedness, business continuity planning, community resilience work, and preparing communities for severe weather events and the increased likelihood of food supply interruptions. While libraries are not first responders, they should be connected with the emergency management community and be positioned as part of both the short-term and long-term “first restorer” network as disruptions amplified by climate change happen with more frequency.
Presented by: Rebekkah Smith Aldrich (MLS, LEED AP), Executive Director, Mid-Hudson Library System (NY), Co-founder/Current President, Sustainable Libraries Initiative (SLI), and author; additional presenter info coming soon.
NOTE: 90-minute session
