null It's back! January Climate Change Symposium offers inspired line-up of speakers

November 25, 2019 -

On Jan. 16, join the City and Sustainable Kingston at The Grand Theatre, 218 Princess St., for the third annual Climate Change Symposium. Hear from speakers on a diverse set of topics ranging from creating spaces where people flourish to how to introduce green-thinking in the workplace.

One thread will weave the presentations together: inspiring action!

"Each day, we make decisions that have a positive or negative impact on our environment. It can feel overwhelming. This year, at the Climate Change Symposium, we will identify the small (and large) ways we can all act and make a difference," says Kristin Mullin, executive director of Sustainable Kingston.

Helping us identify these actions are speakers from Kingston, and around Canada. So far, the line-up includes:  

  • Jennifer Keesmaat, internationally recognized and award-winning urban planner who has been named one of the "most influential" by Toronto Life, and one of the top Women of Influence in Canada.
  • Mason Proust and Matt Brown, Patagonia;  and
  • Robert Keen, CEO of Forests Ontario.

"As the event draws closer, we look forward to unveiling our full list of speakers," says Mullin. The Climate Change Symposium is hosted by the City and Sustainable Kingston, and sponsored by St. Lawrence College, Queen's University, Lafarge, Carbonzero, Environmentall Contracting Services, Mac & Co. and Lightenco.

Tickets for the Climate Change Symposium – $20 or $15 for students (+ HST and handling fee) – can be purchased through The Grand Theatre: www.kingstongrand.ca

Demonstrating leadership on climate action is one of Council's strategic priorities.
