We have all just experienced the worst wildfire season in BC and Canada in recorded history. Many of us are wondering how we can turn our worry and frustration about climate change into action that will make a difference.
Climate Connections is an event that brings together those of us who are looking for opportunities to act on our concerns and those of us who want to share experiences and grow our community.
Join us on Tuesday, October 24th, 6:30-8:30pm at the Heritage Hall to learn about the inspiring local climate action happening in Vancouver and around BC, and how we can work together to increase our impact.
On October 24, you will have a chance to:
- Hear from a panel session featuring local community and climate leaders, including Dr. Melissa Lem, the President of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE), Ishmam Bhuiyan with the UBC Social Justice Centre, Dr. Tara Mahoney, a civic engagement researcher at SFU, and Tarlan Razzaghi, from For Our Kids.
- Meet other community members who share your concerns, take a deeper dive into ways you can support existing initiatives and share your own ideas you’d like to explore with others.
Refreshments will be provided. Please bring your own cup, plate, and utensils to help minimize waste.
Accessibility note: There is a wheelchair-accessible entrance on Main Street and a gender-neutral, accessible bathroom inside the hall. To increase accessibility, we are looking into the possibility of providing childcare onsite during the event. If this is something you're interested in, please email us at the address below and let us know how many children you have and their ages before Oct. 13th.
If you have any other accessibility needs, please do not hesitate to reach out to us [email protected].
