Climate Emergency: The Citizen’s Guide to Climate Success

February 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

In this PICS-sponsored talk, Mark Jaccard shares the findings of his new book and speaks on how climate-concerned citizens can overcome myths that hinder us from acting in time to prevent extreme climate impacts. Their actions can involve personal consumption choices (electric vehicles, heat pumps) but these only have an effect if citizens are also engaged in the political process and civil society to elect and support climate-sincere politicians. These personal and collective efforts must align with and foster a global strategy of decarbonization, especially in developing countries. Come to the talk to find out what you can do.  Matt Horne will respond to Mark’s presentation and share strategies that the City of Vancouver is implementing to create climate success.

This event is free and open to everyone. Reservations are NOT required. 

We anticipate a full house so recommend arriving early. Mark’s book will also be available for purchase.
