Climate change represents one of the largest existential threats facing humankind. The symptoms-- increased precipitation, drought and extreme weather events-- are also leading to a sharp rise in “eco-anxiety”. It’s clear that urgent action is needed to mitigate and adapt to these threats. As climate disasters piled up in 2021, Canada's ambitions and commitments to climate action need to accelerate to better reflect the deep transformations needed.
This panel will explore critical shifts needed across Canada to meaningfully address climate change and the window of opportunity to build a resilient, inclusive, sustainable economy.
