Conversation Series: Webinar 2

Another Covid 19 Webinar: Mobilizing Canada for climate action – a conversation with Seth Klein

Our second 2020 webinar for local electeds from across British Columbia and Canada featured a conversation with Seth Klein about the recently released A Good War: Mobilizing Canada for the Climate Emergency. Amy Lubik, a city councilor in Port Moody, facilitated the conversation.

In his book, Seth makes a new and significant contribution to the struggle for bold and transformative climate action in Canada by proposing a new approach to tackling the crisis. In doing so, he shares what Canada can learn from the urgency and ingenuity displayed during the Second World War — and, most recently, the response to the Covid 19 pandemic. He also had some valuable insights on the key issues local electeds should be highlighting at this time.

As most of you already know, Seth was the founding director of CCPA-BC (Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives) and has been a long-time advisor to us on all things High Ground (our annual civic governance forum).
