Climate Change & the Human Prospect: A Thinkers Retreat

A 3-day intensive discussion with global and local thinkers to define a path to restore and revitalize local communities in the face of climate change

The Centre for Local Prosperity in collaboration with Project Drawdown and Thinkers Lodge, Pugwash, NS, present a 3 day working retreat to outline a collective strategy that identifies, explains and prescribes scientific, social and financial opportunities and risks of climate change for local municipalities throughout Atlantic Canada.  This invitation-only retreat with international and local leaders is intended to lead to an Outcome Paper that would be the topic for a larger conference at a later date.  This retreat is being held 60 years after the historic Pugwash Conference in 1957 on nuclear proliferation.  Public and student events will be held on Thursday, Sept 28, and Sunday, Oct 1.
