Webinar: Facing Climate Change

Monday, April 3rd, 2017


Time: 1:00 - 2:00 PM

Join Ontario’s Environmental Commissioner, Dianne Saxe, in this webinar for an overview of her annual greenhouse gas (GHG) report.

Environmental Commissioner of Ontario, Dr. Dianne Saxe, will provide an overview of her annual greenhouse gas (GHG) report, Facing Climate Change. The Commissioner’s talk will cover the urgent threat climate change poses to our planet, Ontario’s current greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and what the provincial government is doing to reduce emissions. Although the province took great steps towards GHG reductions over the past year, the Environmental Commissioner’s report contains several recommendations around the additional activities the government, and citizens, can undertake to adequately address climate change.
