In collaboration with the KW Chapter of the Council of Canadians, Divest Waterloo, and UW’s Faculty of Environment, the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change is hosting two events on June 18 and 19th, 2019
Our goal is to engage participants more deeply on the climate emergency and to contribute to a Green New Deal for Canada, an action plan built from the grassroots. Similar events are happening now right across Canada. We invite you to join us! Participants are welcome to attend both events.
