Event description

Description

Keynote Speaker: David Miller, President and CEO, World Wildlife Fund - Canada (Former Mayor of Toronto)

Join the McMaster Centre for Climate Change for our Fall public lecture from David Miller. David Miller was the visionary behind the City of Toronto's 2007 Climate Change Action Plan which set an ambitious target of 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. That ambitious target was the catalyst behind current efforts by the City of Toronto, under the TransformTO initiative, to define low carbon pathways at a district and city-wide scale.

David Miller believes that the solutions to climate change are underway, led by the world’s great cities, and the recent support of forward looking governments like Canada. But it is clear from events like the serious flooding in Houston that the need to act is urgent. His talk will demonstrate that the programs and policies led by cities around the world show the path forward to mitigate the effects of climate change in a way that builds strong communities - and achieves the goals of the Paris Agreement.

This event is brought to you in partnership between the McMaster Centre for Climate Change, the McMaster Water Network, the Ontario Climate Consortium, the City of Hamilton, Sustainable Hamilton/Burlington and UNU-INWEH.

Light refreshments and networking begin at 6:30. David Miller's lecture will begin at 7:00pm.
