CleanBC Plan: What does it mean for BC communities?
In December, the Province of BC released its new climate change plan – CleanBC. Learn how the provincial government intends to lower BC’s greenhouse gas emissions and foster a clean economy to reach its 2030 targets, and understand how the plan could affect climate action planning in communities.
Nancy Olewiler, Professor at Simon Fraser University and member of the Province of BC’s Climate Advisory Council, will share key actions from CleanBC, how the council participated in its development, and next steps for the BC government.
Dale Littlejohn, Executive Director of the Community Energy Association, will discuss potential policies and climate change initiatives that municipalities could implement to support the actions in the provincial plan.
