Panels Not Pipelines: A Speaking Tour About Solutions

Oct 21 2014 - 1:00am to 3:00am

Alberta has faced more than its fair share of environmental and fiscal horror stories. The province's chaotic emphasis on hydrocarbon development has delivered endless pipeline leaks, growing bitumen pollution and unaccountable one-party government. These problems have left many Albertans wondering if we could write a different story. A story that still creates jobs and keeps our economy strong but without the environmental downside.

Luckily those solutions are readily at hand and Alberta is the perfect place to implement them. Read more about Panels Not Pipelines: A Speaking Tour About Solutions

Turning up the empowerment dial: Community engagement in addressing climate disruption

Jan 25 2014 - 1:00am to 3:00am

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. Fortunately, citizens and stakeholders are now being engaged as key partners in assessing climate impacts deciding how to move forward. We can seize the opportunity to highlight and amplify stories from communities that are already benefitting from clean energy and climate solutions.

Speaker Bio: Cara Pike is the founder and director of Climate Access, a network for those engaging the public in the transformation to low-carbon, resilient communities. She has created many widely used communications tools, including the Ecological Roadmap (a values-based approach to building support for environmental protection) and Climate Communications and Behavior Change: A Guide for Practitioners.
