a panel presentation and conversation

You are invited to attend this public forum on October 1, 2019. You will hear from a very diverse list of speakers, and have a chance to ask questions.

Panelists will address the questions:

· Given your area of expertise – Why is climate action essential?
· What have you seen that helps you “take heart?”
· What advice do you have for audience members when it comes to action?

This will be a free event, although we will gratefully accept donations to help support expenses associated with this event and with our ongoing work. The event is organized by Bow Valley Climate Action.
