Call for Track Facilitators

We are currently searching for experienced facilitators to lend their expertise to support the 2021 California Adaptation Forum: The Grand Adaptation Challenge. With support from the CAF planning team, we envision track facilitators playing a critical role in helping shape a dynamic and meaningful experience for participants by:

  1. Refining the track’s scope, objectives, and desired outcomes;
  2. Developing the agenda and inviting speakers for the track’s kick-off webinar;
  3. Designing and facilitating three interactive workshops to achieve track objectives; and
  4. Summarizing outcomes from workshops to inform the track’s closing outcomes webinar.

We are aiming to identify 3 facilitators for each track who will collaborate with one another and the CAF planning team on the above activities. Templates, online tools, notetakers, and technical support will also be provided to support facilitators.

If you are interested in serving as a CAF track facilitator, we kindly ask you to complete the brief form below by Monday, May 17th.

CAF 2020 Highlights

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 California Adaptation Forum was adapted to feature a virtual series. In partnership with Alliance of Regional Collaboratives for Climate Adaptation (ARCCA), we organized a 3-part webinar series that engaged 1,400 leaders and practitioners from across the state. We look forward to organizing an in-person convening for California’s adaptation community when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we invite you to explore resources from CAF 2020 and to join us for CAF 2021: The Grand Adaptation Challenge.
