Salt Spring Island, BC recently piloted a revolutionary new platform and engagement process which empowered residents to give meaningful input in their community's Climate Action Plan. The Ethelo platform helped overcome polarization, and the micro-targeted public engagement ensured input was gathered from community members beyond the ‘usual suspects'.
Over 10% of the population participated in the engagement and also contributed over 5000 comments and ideas that will help shape public policy going forward.
In this webinar, climate engagement experts will discuss how Salt Spring meaningfully consulted their community to inform an achievable Climate Action Plan with overwhelming public support, in the midst of a pandemic.
Each session is full of valuable tools, tips, and resources to help you scale your community engagement and climate action practices. And of course, we record every second of it for you to watch at your leisure.
