Carleton University Hosts Lecture on Climate Change Policy in Canada

Professor Thomas Homer-Dixon will present the 2016 Carleton University Faculty of Public Affairs’ Currents Lecture entitled Leap to where? Elements of a Canadian climate policy that could be both feasible and enough.

When: Friday, Sept. 16, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
Where: River Building Theatre, RB2200, 1125 Colonel By Drive, Carleton University

In this lecture, Homer-Dixon will address the topic of climate change policy in Canada, an issue that demands bold measures. As part of the lecture he will speak to the “Leap Manifesto,” a sweeping and ambitious plan but one that can be perceived as profoundly decisive. Homer-Dixon will explore the possibility that there is an alternative climate policy that will be able to both unite Canadians and protect the environment.

Homer-Dixon is the Centre for International Governance Innovation Chair of Global Systems of the Balsillie School at the University of Waterloo. He graduated from Carleton with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 1980 and has been selected as a member of the Faculty of Public Affairs’ 75 for the 75th, a showcase of the faculty’s most inspiring alumni.
