This free public keynote presentation is part of the University of Alberta's Student Sustainability Summit. From the Sustainability Summit website:

Description: Most Canadians care about climate change and want action, yet the path away from fossil fuel dependence seems distant and unclear.

We can seize the opportunity to highlight and amplify stories from communities that are already benefitting from clean energy and climate solutions.
