Climate Change & Municipal Declarations - What does it mean?
Time & Location
About the Event
A free panel discussion about climate change and municipal declaration. Local panelists include Danielle Valiquette, the local Green Party candidate in the upcoming federal election and a Grey Highlands councillor, Grey County planners Scott Taylor and Hiba Hussain, and Dyan Jones, who recently – and successfully – urged West Grey to declare a climate change emergency.
The panel will address what declaring a climate emergency means, why we should care about the effects of climate change, why addressing it is a municipal issue, what municipalities can do about it, and what is the role of a citizen advisory committee.
