Climate Change Discussion

As you may be aware, the Government of Canada has launched a new interactive website to gather input from the public on how to address climate change and promote clean growth.


To gather ideas, I am partnering with the Department of Geography at Memorial University, to hold a session (world café style) to get your ideas on what governments and individuals can do to reduce and adapt to climate change.


Please see attached for a presentation that includes questions and topics on which we are seeking your input. Specifically we would like to hear your ideas on:

  • How and where to reduce emissions
  • Ideas for new technology and job creation
  • How to put a price on carbon
  • Preparing for the impacts of climate change
  • General ideas on climate change reduction

You (or a representative) are invited to join us at 9:30am on Friday, May 27 at Memorial University.


Your RSVP would be appreciated by noon Wednesday, May 25 to as it will help us to plan accordingly and to provide you with additional logistical information.


I look forward to discussing these important subjects with you.  Your ideas will be inputted to the portal to be considered in the development of the pan-Canadian framework on climate change and clean growth.


Please do not hesitate to contact me or Jennifer Burley with any questions or comments.
