Course Overview: Insurance 101 for Climate Activists will enable you to better understand the basic concepts of liability and insurance and its relationship to climate change.
The class will commence with a brief history of insurance, then move onto the establishment of CERCLA, RCRA/SARA and how these environmental laws changed the insurance industry.
After learning the basics of insurance, the class will progress into how the industry is in need of change in order to better respond to current and future climatic conditions.
We will discuss how insurance currently addresses (or fails to address) wildfire, flood and extreme heat.
The course is being led by Wendy E. Nystrom, M.A., CRIS, ENV SP, with contributions from key guest speakers.
The course will be held remotely via ZOOM video conference. And the course will be recorded for later viewing. However, participants are strongly encouraged to participate live. There will be breakouts, q-&-a opportunities and more. Live participation will be better!!
