– What’s next for federal action on climate change, and what does this mean for cities like Ottawa?
– What will a more climate-friendly Ottawa look like, and how will we get there?
– What kinds of innovative climate solutions are other cities and countries bringing to the table, and what can we learn from their example?
Join the Honourable Catherine McKenna (Ottawa Centre MP, Minister of Environment and Climate Change), David Chernushenko (Capital Ward Councillor, Chair of the Environment and Climate Protection Committee) and Tobi Nussbaum (Rideau-Rockcliffe Ward Councillor) for a public discussion of these and other pressing questions.

Climate change is a complex problem, and solving it takes much more than international agreements. In Canada, cities and the federal government need to play a dynamic and mutually reinforcing role in tackling this challenge. And addressing climate change means diving into many other issues – from transportation, to the way we build our cities, to the systems that deliver our food, energy and consumer products.
