The 'Community Climate Conversations' (CCCs) are a city spanning initiative that brings a host of bonafide climate experts to Calgary communities so citizens can not just listen to them but engage with them (and each other) in *real* conversations about the climate topics that resonate with them the most, from Climate Science to Renewable Energy to Eco-Anxiety to you-name-it!
Our events in Sunnyside, Marda Loop, the East Village, Sunalta, Marlborough and for the Calgary Alliance for the Common Good have been solid successes in our books as we have had good attendance and responses from those communities!
We want to keep this ball rolling into 2020 and beyond so we're very happy to announce our next Conversation in Renfrew on January 23rd at the Renfrew Community Association!
Here is our RSVP link for the Renfrew Conversation. Please register and feel free to share with your networks (*especially* if they live or work in Renfrew!): https://www.calgaryclimatehub.ca/ccc7_renfrew
Beyond Renfrew we've lined up Conversations in communities near you right through to August (we take a break in July).
|West Hillhurst||March 24|
|ANNOUNCEMENT SOON!||June 16|
Let's work together on an impactful 2020 for Climate in Calgary!
See you at the Conversations!
