Royal Roads University published an article about the participation of Dr. Robin Cox and climate expert Marsha Wagner in a climate adaptation discussion held at the Dutch consulate in Vancouver.

Cox’s work includes the RbD Innovation Lab’s Inspiring Climate Action Project, which is focused on fostering a professional learning community on climate and resilience.
