For the last few years, I’ve been working with a group of over 60 scholars, scientists, and decision-makers from throughout Canada, and representing multiple disciplines and backgrounds, to discover and promote possible pathways towards a low-carbon economy.
Working together with this group, and with representatives from civil society from Coast to Coast to Coast, we produced a set of insights and recommendations for climate change actions and potential models for engagement.
The resulting article, Stimulating a Canadian Narrative for Climate, was just published through Open Access in FACETS. Click on the picture below to access the article in full text.
This past Wednesday, March 18th, we officially launched the Sustainable Canada Dialogues‘ Acting on Climate Change Report/Agir Sur Les Changements Climatiques in Montreal at the Americana 2015 conference. This Action Plan represents an unprecedented collaboration of over 60 scholars from across Canada, representing numerous disciplines, to come to consensus on what can be done to mitigate climate change and support a thriving Canada.
This launch event was incredibly successful, bringing together scholars, scientists, decision-makers, industry leaders, and business representatives from across the country and internationally to talk climate action and to share solutions. Our report and collaboration also made world-wide news, being featured on the front page of the Vancouver Sun, in the Globe & Mail, in Science News, the Guardian, and the Huffington Post, to name but a few.
