Join us for the third Change for Climate Talks, an event to inspire Edmontonians to take action on climate change.
On October 3, 2019, speakers from Edmonton's various communities will take the stage at the Triffo Theatre at MacEwan Univeristy's Allard Hall to discuss the threat of climate change, why it's happening and what it means for our city and the world. Each speaker will present a 7-minute talk on topics ranging from urban farming to mental health resiliency. The talks will also be recorded and made available for all of us to enjoy after the event.
Doors will open at 5:30 pm for you to enjoy some light refreshments and a cash bar, with talks beginning at 6:30 pm. Tickets are available to purchase for $10 online.
