How we talk about climate change can shape how we take action to address it. Join Ashley Rose Mehlenbacher, alongside Sara Doody and Carolyn Eckert, for our first research spotlight of 2022. They’ll share their research focusing on communication strategies that make a climate impacted future more present, thus generating climate action. They will also discuss research about how we might think and talk about responsibility to future generations, and how this might shape our climate actions.

One million migrants arrived in Europe in 2015 seeking asylum from war and conflict.

Join Canadian and American experts in an open discussion of what we know about global environmental migration, and what research has yet to tell us.
