The Pacific Northwest Climate Impacts Research Consortium (CIRC), a former NOAA RISA team, will host a screening of the short film “Spokane Climate Project” by Rogue Heart Media on May 16 at 7pm at Gonzaga University. The Spokane Climate Project is an ongoing collaborative effort between CIRC and the community of Spokane, Washington. The project’s goals are to identify climate and weather impacts faced by the Spokane community as well as resiliency actions designed to keep the community, its economy, and natural systems healthy and prosperous. Project participants include representatives from city and county entities, local universities, local nonprofits, and local businesses.
The engaging twenty-minute film highlighting this work provides a window into five ways that Spokane’s climate is changing, from temperature and precipitation, to snowpack, streamflow, and wildfire smoke. After the screening, participants will be able to interact with the film Director, Megan Kennedy, as well as the community members who helped create the Spokane Climate Project report. After the discussion of the film, attendees will have an opportunity to know what they and their families can do to take action to reduce their impact and be more resilient to climate change.
