Spring Speaker Series- Climate Change Mitigation: Global trends and local implications

May 15, 2019 12:00 pm

Please join Sustainable Saint John for the May installment of our 2019 Spring Speaker Series. Susan Atkinson, Director of Climate Change Mitigation for the Government of New Brunswick, will speak on trends in the global effort to mitigate climate change and what this means for New Brunswickers.

Levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have reached another new record high, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO 2018) and there is no sign of a reversal in this trend.  This talk will explore this trend to further our understanding of what sectors in the Canadian and New Brunswick economy are the major contributors to climate change and what we can do locally to contribute to reversing this trend.

A delicious lunch will be provided! Vegetarian and gluten free options available.
