PS21 is excited and pleased to host one of the architects of the 2015 Paris Agreement, the historic accord on climate change that currently enjoys the support of nearly every nation in world. Dr. Edward Cameron will be joining us on Wednesday April 18 at 7:00 PM at 3S Artspace at 319 Vaughan Street.
Dr. Cameron will provide us with an overview of the Paris Agreement. This will include detail on the architecture of the Agreement, as any successful attempt to align municipal strategy with the Agreement should borrow from the architecture.
He will then proceed with an assessment of the climate policy of our federal government, followed by an overview of how other non-state actors in the United States are building a low-carbon climate-resilient economy with a particular emphasis on the private sector, as he views this as an exercise in economic development for the region.
Finally, he will give us a sense of what would be needed to build a climate strategy on the local level, along with some guidance as to what individuals can do to be agents of climate action.
Following the presentation, we will reserve ample time for questions and discussion. The event is free and all are welcome. Please register online to help ensure sufficient seating.
