The Recovery Series

A Tale of Two Crises: COVID-19 and Climate Change

Join us for week two of The Recovery Series with Executive Director, Tim Gray, where we try to make sense of the COVID-19 crisis from an environmental perspective. Each week, we dig into the most pressing questions on current environmental issues.

In our second talk, we will dive into national climate policies that could help pivot the COVID-19 crisis into transformative change for both our economy and the planet. We will shine a light on the oil and gas industry’s attempts to secure bailouts & regulatory rollbacks, and propose alternative policies that could build a resilient post-COVID society across Canada. Six Nations of the Grand River will share their inspiring example of running some of the largest wind and solar power plants in the nation. 

Register today so you can tune in for the discussion!
