Description

A conversation with the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy

When British Columbia laid out its first climate plan a decade ago, it set a precedent, embracing local governments to drive greenhouse gas reductions. As North America’s first jurisdiction to require community-level emissions targets, B.C. influenced other climate leaders, such as California, Ontario, and Oregon.

Today, ten years later, greenhouse gas emissions in the B.C. are virtually unchanged. The province and most local governments are not on track to meet their targets.

With the Government of B.C. updating its climate plan, how will the urban agenda be considered?

Join us for a presentation and conversation with George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy for British Columbia.

At the dialogue we will:

· Learn about the government’s strategy for updating B.C.’s climate plan

· Discuss opportunities for integrating urban priorities into the climate plan
