PRESENTED BY: Elizabeth Schwartz, JSGS Assistant Professor
What are Canadian cities doing to combat climate change? How can we make those actions more effective? Responding to climate change and preventing catastrophic and irreversible changes to our environment is going to require large-scale transformation of our societies and economic systems over the next few decades. This will require more than technological innovation. In this presentation, Elizabeth Schwartz focuses on local contributions to global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The majority of GHG emissions are created in urban areas, and although a large proportion can be, at least indirectly, controlled by municipalities, responding to climate change isn’t a typical responsibility of local governments. What can our cities do to make a difference?
