PARTICIPATE IN THE GRAND FORUM DES COMMUNAUTÉS RÉSILIENTES

The Grand forum des communautés résilientes is an opportunity to draw on collective knowledge to better address the social, environmental and economic issues caused by climate change.

In addition to sharing knowledge from communities and research, participants will co-create solutions and build collaborative projects during hands-on workshops. A call for action will also be prepared and validated by the participants during the event in order to urge the research community, elected officials and municipal practitioners to act collectively to increase community resilience and facilitate adaptation to climate change.

The forum aims to bring together community members of the Rés-Alliance, professionals from the public sector and from communities and municipalities, researchers and students, First Nations community representatives, elected officials and committed citizens. It’s a must-attend event on June 4-5!

Réseau Québec Maritime

The Réseau Québec maritime (RQM) was founded in 2016 under Quebec’s first Maritime Strategy. Established with the aim to unite and bring together researchers from across the province to deal with the major issues related to sustainable and responsible maritime development, the RQM facilitates dialogue, intersectoral collaboration and the joint creation of initiative-driven research projects with stakeholders in regard to everything related directly or indirectly to fluvial or marine environments. Quebec’s Ministry of Economy and Innovation and Fonds de recherche du Québec are the RQM’S financial partners.

MEOPAR NETWORK

The MEOPAR Network (Marine Environmental Observation, Prediction and Response Network) is a network of centres of excellence financed by the federal government. Established in 2012, the MEOPAR Network funds research, trains highly qualified personnel, develops strategic partnerships and supports the mobilization of knowledge regarding the challenges and opportunities of the marine and coastal environment, for the benefit of the Canadian economy and society.
