From extreme drought to intensified flooding, the Canadian prairies have experienced variable weather patterns for decades and this variable weather is anticipated to be exacerbated under climate change. In this open forum, we will explore the impacts and relationships between weather and climate variations offering response options and practices that offer synergies with sustainable development. The expert panel of speakers will share insight via global and provincial policy on climate impacts, scientific evidence, and prairie resilience mitigation action strategies. This two-hour investigative opportunity is at no cost to the public and will include a question and answer period and refreshments.

Panelists include:

  • Melissa Bramham, General Manager, Wascana & Upper Qu’Appelle Watersheds Association Taking Responsibility Inc.
  • Kerri Finlay, Associate Professor, Department of Biology, Universty of Regina
  • Margot Hurlbert, CRC in Climate Change, Energy and Sustainability Policy, Professor, JSGS
