    Don't be left out in the cold. Join the City for a climate change discussion

    Join the City of Edmonton to discuss The Right To Be Cold, the latest in the City’s The Way We Green Speaker Series.

    Date: Wednesday, January 27, 2016
    Time: Noon
    Location: Art Gallery of Alberta, 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square

    This event features Inuit advocate and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Sheila Watt-Cloutier, for her presentation, The Right To Be Cold: Human Rights And Our Changing Climate. Climate change is transforming the Arctic and creating a massive challenge for the world’s environmental future. Going beyond the science and the politics, Sheila shares her firsthand experience living in the Arctic and leading change on the global stage.

    The feature keynote presentation will be held later that evening, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., at 1-430 Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science at the University of Alberta.

    This event is part of the University of Alberta’s International Week and Sustainability Speaker Series and the City of Edmonton’s The Way We Green Speakers Series, which aims to inspire dialogue among Edmontonians working together to build a greener and more resilient city.
