2018 – 2022
In 2018, SHIFT Collaborative hosted Making the Links: Climate Change, Community Health and Resilience – the first gathering of its kind in B.C. to advance collaborative, cross-sectoral action on climate change and health in the province. The sold-out event had 180 participants representing multiple sectors gathered for two days in Kelowna, B.C., to listen to inspiring speakers and community stories. Participants shared knowledge, engaged in cross-sector dialogue, and identified challenges and opportunities for collaborative action. From this event, SHIFT Collaborative produced a Framework for Collaborative Action on Health and Climate Change (2019) and a series of Community Stories on Action to Address Health and Climate Change (2021).
