Turning the Tide on Climate – presented by Kingston 350

January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Monday, repeating until March 1, 2021

Free

These days, it is almost a cliché to say that we are at a turning point in world history. Everyone knows we must reduce global carbon emissions dramatically in the next decade or we’re headed for disaster. But what are the best practices for turning the ship around? The idea with this series is to hear from Kingston-based scientists and activists on the front lines of the climate emergency and to give you a chance to ask them your most pressing questions. The series welcomes people who don’t normally think much about climate change and are hesitant about political spin. Because we want participants to have ample opportunity to ask questions, each week’s event will start with a 15–20-minute presentation by the speaker on Zoom, followed by a 40-minute question period. What are your questions? What do you want to know more about? Now is your chance to ask.
