From extreme hurricanes to record breaking wild fires , climate change is advancing at a quicker and quicker pace. How can New Brunswick best help fight this global problem?

At 6:30 pm on Wednesday,October 18th, the Greater Fredericton Greens will host an event at the Charlotte Street Art Centre. The event will focus on how people in New Brunswick can best help fight the global problem of climate change .

Admission is free.

It will feature a panel of four of the best minds in the province.

Each of our wonderful panelists will offer a 10-15 minute presentation indicating how we as New Brunswickers can help with climate change mitigation. The presentations will be followed by a live question and answer session that will last up to an additional 1-2 hours.

Our emcee for the evening will be the ever-energetic Maggie Connell, who also facilitated several of New Brunswick’s anti-fracking town halls.

This event presents a unique opportunity to expand your knowledge of climate change mitigation, from different perspectives and opinions. Furthermore, the interactive question and answer period will provide the chance to ask hard hitting questions to our experts.
