  • The Calgary DIGITAL Climate Conversation

    THIS JUST IN! What is a DIGITAL Community Climate Conversation? It's what a forward-leaning group like the Hub does in a time of great challenge to ensure we're still moving the ball on Climate! 

    Rather than cancelling our upcoming West Hillhurst Climate Conversation we have decided to go fully digital so great folks like you can still attend and participate from the safety of your own home. We think this is an opportunity for the Hub to show some leadership and a chance for all of us to do something interesting and resilient in this time of great challenge. 

    I have been working with our tech node to decide how best to be able to continue these important Conversations especially now, given folks are self-isolating and binge-watching Netflix while we all hunker down and wait this thing out. What better time for a Climate Conversation, am I right?!?!

    We will have a tested solution in place and volunteer support for our speakers to ensure any tech hangups are mitigated. We will be lining up West Hillhurstians/Calgarians hungry for a Conversation and we'd love to have you onboard!

     

    Ever forward (now more than ever) and flatten the curve,

  • National Fridays for Future Climate Strike

    Fridays for Future is a non-partisan, youth-led grassroots organization focused on spreading awareness on climate change through strikes. Our hope is through peaceful protesting that political bodies will take action to mitigate climate change.

     

    April 3rd is the next national strike for Canada and is registered here https://www.fridaysforfuture.org/. This event is for everyone willing to take peaceful action to push for progressive government action to mitigate climate change.

     

    Local youth activists will speak on their experiences, concerns and demands and stand in solidarity with other strikers. We hope Calgarians will come together to voice their concerns on climate change and push for a cleaner and greener future.

  • The Bridgeland-Riverside Climate Conversation

    Bridgeland-Riverside!! Come join us in a conversation about climate change issues at the Community Association on Sunday night, May 3rd, 630-9pm!

    What are the Community Climate Conversations?

    The Conversations are an opportunity for you to discuss climate change issues with your neighbours, facilitated by local experts. We start by introducing each facilitator and their topic. Facilitators then spread out around the room and attendees are invited to speak to the person or people that interest them the most.

    This is a pressure-free event. Whether you're curious about climate change or a full-time activist, you're welcome to join us and your local community as we journey through this complex and significant topic. Bring your questions and join us for a great evening. We keep track of RSVPs so we can anticipate how many people to expect, but this is optional. Also, please feel free to respond to this post or via email if you have any questions/ideas about the Conversations or how you can help the Hub keep moving the ball on Climate in Calgary!
