Alberta's Changing Climate Public Discussion 

Alberta is undergoing a period of energy and economic transition prompted in part by responses to the impacts of climate change. Alberta’s fresh water resources and the hydrologic cycle are being significantly impacted and are likely to be impacted more dramatically in the near future. The evening’s speakers addressed the implications of these challenges as we navigate transition in Alberta.  The event was held on Wednesday, October 12th, 2016 at the University of Alberta which is located in Treaty Six territory. MLA Chris Nielsen from the Office of the Minister for the Environment and Parks, honoured us by opening the event. Here is the video of the presentations.
