Douglas College is hosting a talk on local responses to climate change with speakers from SFU and Metro Vancouver.
Climate Change: Local responses to weather the storm is a talk being hosted at Douglas College’s New Westminster campus on Thursday, Nov. 21, according to a media advisory.
The talk will include speakers Andréanne Doyon, an assistant professor at the SFU School of Resource and Environmental Management, and Roger Quan, Metro Vancouver’s director of air quality and climate. It will be moderated by Douglas College sociology instructor Siobhan Ashe.
“With recent climate change warnings issued by thousands of scientists, countries and cities around the world are declaring climate emergencies,” reads the media advisory. “This public forum will be a discussion about how Metro Vancouver is responding to this global crisis and what challenges we may face.”
The event will include presentations from local experts on what kinds of strategies other municipal governments are using to tackle climate change, along with a look at Metro Vancouver’s Climate 2050 strategy.
The event will run from 6 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 21 in room 2201 of Douglas College’s New West campus.
