Mon. Oct 20th 2014 – Energy and the Next Federal Election: Public Talk
Over the next year, leading to the next scheduled federal election (currently 19 October 2015), the BC Sustainable Energy Association will host six expert and engaging speakers to address six key sustainable energy and climate action issues from a federal policy perspective, to be followed by an all-candidates meeting just before the election. Join us for the first speaker on Monday October 20th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the First Metropolitan Church, located at 932 Balmoral Road (in Victoria’s North Park community).
Taking the stage will be Heather Bauer, Senior Climate Action Analyst at the BC Government’s Climate Action Secretariat, with a talk on Behaviour Change that will explore how we can empower people to act and influence others to address climate change.
“Is it really worth my efforts to personally take on climate change? Who is to blame for this mess and shouldn’t they pay?”
There are plenty of questions to ask about the challenge of climate change. Many of these questions lead us to forgo actively contributing to solutions. Why is this?
Heather will share a unique perspective sourced from experience in government, intergovernmental relations, experts in community engagement and the latest in human psychology.
This talk will also explore how to help individuals, families and communities prepare for climate changes we are committed to. Look forward to learning about tangible climate actions you may not have heard yet.
