Spur Toronto: Risk and the Environment
Sat, 8 April 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:15 PM EDT
Flash floods in Toronto. Raging wildfires in Fort McMurray. The threatened Big One on the West Coast. Severe weather events have increasingly dominated news reports, given their unpredictable appearance and the huge cost to individuals and communities, both financially and in terms of human misery. Our world’s climate patterns are surely changing; Spur explores what are the costs and policy implications for these types of activities and what can we do to best protect ourselves?
This Spur event is supported by SSHRC, the Social Sciences and Humanties Research Council of Canada.
With David McGown of the Insurance Board of Canada and more speakers to come!
