Climate Change Plan Talk Story

Aloha –

I wanted to reach out to you to keep you updated on our Climate Adaptation Plan process. Here are a couple upcoming engagement opportunities: 

1) Open House Events. Our open houses are finally launching! The CAP open house events will gather public input and concerns related to climate change vulnerability and adaptation actions for Kauaʻi. The County will be holding a series of both virtual and in-person open house events. Check out our flyer for details. We would love to see you there! 

2) Survey. We encourage you to take our short online survey, where you can share your opinions of and experiences with the impacts of climate change. Your answers are anonymous, and you can also skip any questions. 

Survey link: COMMUNITY SURVEY ON CLIMATE CHANGE IN KAUAʻI (surveymonkey.com) 

We would be so appreciative if you could share these engagement opportunities with your network, ʻohana, and friends! More information about upcoming events, please visit kauaiadaptation.com. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. 

Mahalo, 
Alan Clinton, County of Kauaʻi
