Mobilizing for a Just & Sustainable Future webinar series: Adapting to a Climate in Crisis

Online/En ligne

In the final session we'll be exploring climate adaptation. Even with the best and most ambitious plans to reduce our emissions globally, we will still experience the impacts of our destabilized climate. In fact, we're already beginning to experience it.
Knowing this, how can we care for our communities as we move into this future? How do we ensure food security and access to clean water? How do we protect those who are most vulnerable in our society?

Economic Growth at the Crossroads: A Shift To a Steady State Regenerative Economy in Atlantic Canada

Online/En ligne

Climate disruption, ecological degradation, overpopulation and conspicuous consumption have created a perfect storm that if left unchecked will result in societal and ecological breakdown. As systems break down, opportunities for creative long-term change begin to emerge. These breakthroughs can lead us toward new ways of governing and new models of economy. The future of humanity and earth’s biophysical systems depend on finding and implementing breakthroughs that are socially just and ecologically regenerative. These dialogues are intended to open up conversations for change in Atlantic Canada.
