A Town Hall Meeting on Climate Change and The Green Economy in Newfoundland and Labrador
On November 29, 2016, Memorial University of Newfoundland, with the support of St. Bonaventure’s College, and facilitated by For A New Earth, hosted a town hall meeting on the theme “What is a Green Economy?” The two-hour event featured presentations by experts in ecology, economics, and rural development, as well as an open forum for members of the general public to speak to the challenges facing the province as it transitions from fossil fuels to green, renewable energy in an era of global climate change.
“Thanks to all of you, city councillors, NPOs, concerned citizens and students, who came out to St. Bonaventure’s College on Tuesday night for this important discussion on ‘What is a Green Economy.’ We have much to talk about in this province with regard to climate change, renewables, oil dependency – the conversation is just beginning. The presentations and exchanges that took place were recorded and will be posted in the near future in some form. Please consider signing up to FANE to keep informed of similar events.”
