It is well proven that Climate change is extremely likely to cause strain on many aspects of our communities in the future, from the infrastructure in our homes, to the delicate balance of nature and our public services. As a community it is imperative that we develop resilience, adaptative solutions and implement actions to our ever changing world.
Being proactive in thinking about how we can plan for and adapt to this allows us all an opportunity to work towards a fairer, healthier, more resilient society.
