Join the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and the University of Virginia for an inside look into the thinking and decision-making of leaders in key systems (ecology, social services, public health, public safety) in our community. This event is for everyone who wants to know more about how climate change will affect our community.

Attendees will learn about specific challenges associated with extreme rainfall, heat waves, and seasonal changes from the perspectives of several public servants and about upcoming opportunities to participate in preparation for changes we expect to see.
