The Whistler Institute presents the next event it is Global Perspectives Speaker Series.

Thursday, December 9, in Climate emergency – an action guide for citizens, hear from Dr. Mark Jaccard on how climate-concerned citizens can overcome the myths that hinder us from acting in time to prevent extreme climate impacts.

Our personal consumption choices (electric vehicles, heat pumps) can only have an effect if cpaired with political engagement to elect and support climate-sincere politicians.

These personal and collective efforts must align with and foster a global strategy of decarbonization, especially in developing countries.

“For climate success, we need to understand the combined role of self-interested and wishful thinking biases that prevent us from acting effectively and strategically” explains Dr. Mark Jaccard. “On December 9, be ready to learn what is required on a simple path to climate success and what you can contribute.”

Join presenter Dr. Mark Jaccard and moderator Mayor Jack Crompton for an engaging lecture-style presentation followed by a question and answer session. The event will be followed by an intimate dinner option at Caramba Restaurant for the in-person audience to continue the conversation.
