(Drum roll please…) Introducing the Climate Action Symposium

This definitely looks like it’s worth checking out (it also has one of my favourite words, “symposium” to boot).

Basically, the UBC Sustainability Office and the Office of the provost will be hosting a Climate Action Symposium on October 2nd, and they are hoping to see a strong number of students come to the event. The roster is really top quality so it would definitely be worth attending, those of you deep in the climate action business, or those of you craving a one stop place where you could probably get up to speed.

Anyway, event details can be found here and they are aiming to have everyone registered by September 26th (to register send an email to Jeca Glor Bell).

    I’m registered – are any other Terry folks attending? If so, which session (I’m heading to the one on Policy)?

    Shameless plug: my supervisor is presenting during the, “What research is going on at UBC about climate change” – go listen and learn something.

    Just a note – the link this post goes to really has no information to help me decide whether to go to this or not. Basic stuff like when does it start? When does it end? There’s also a mention that the roster looked pretty sharp, but I can’t seem to find that info on the page.

    Anyway, I’m an advocate of things of this nature generally, but if the intent was to attract folks out, then the website over at the sustainability page doesn’t really deliver.

    Just saying 🙂
