You are invited to the NCC’s first annual Regional Sustainability Workshop!

Please join us online as we present the past year’s accomplishments and progress made under the NCC’s Sustainable Development Strategy. The focus will be to present the recently launched “Climate Projections for the National Capital Region” report.

This webinar is an opportunity to learn about the results of the projections, ask the experts questions, and share ideas about how we can work collaboratively to reduce the impacts of climate change on the National Capital Region.

We want to hear from you about how we can build new partnerships and leverage existing ones to help each other adapt to climate change, and continue to build a more sustainable National Capital Region together.
