The Forum's November hui was held on 18th November 2020 via Zoom. 

The minutes from the hui are available here.

There are two recordings of the hui, available here: 

1. Recording of the presentations from Chris Cameron (Nelson City Council) and Jack Santa Barbara (Climate Forum) on strategies for reducing our emissions, energy descent, adapting to climate change impacts, and the Nelson Plan coastal hazards engagement. This recording also includes an introduction to the Climate Forum's draft Regional Strategic Climate Action Plan (RSCAP).

2. Recording of the post-breakout room discussion. In this video participants from each of the breakout rooms share highlights of what was discussed in breakout rooms. There were four breakout rooms held during the hui, on the following topics: Mitigation - emissions; Mitigation - sequestration; Adaptation - physical, ecology; Adaptation - social, economic. The question posed to each breakout room was:

"Are our proposed regional actions [as set out in our draft Regional Strategic Climate Action Plan] sufficient to deal with what's coming? If not, what's missing? Either way, what should we prioritise, according to our vision and values for the region?"

You can find the draft RSCAP here.
