Change is in the Air: from Climate Chaos to Climate Justice

Jan 20 2016 (All day) - Jan 21 2016 (All day)

Change is in the Air Poster

The King’s University invites you to its Winter 2016 Interdisciplinary Studies Conference

CHANGE IS IN THE AIR – in more ways than one. On one hand, the climate is changing. Overwhelming scientific consensus confirms the reality of climate change and warns of the threat it poses to the planet and its human and non-human inhabitants. These warnings have prompted urgent appeals, not simply for changes in action and policy, but also deeper changes in how we think about and imagine our relationship to the creation itself. But change is in the air in other ways too – as vulnerable communities respond to the challenge of global warming, as our reliance on the carbon economy is being questioned, and as political leaders try to hammer out a global climate agreement, change is inevitable.

Under the Big Top: 2015 Conference on Canadian Stewardship & Recycling Council of Alberta Waste Reduction Conference

Sep 30 2015 (All day) - Oct 2 2015 (All day)

From the conference website:

The Conference on Canadian Stewardship (CCS) is where industry and government come together to discuss current and topical issues affecting product stewardship in Canada. This is an “industry-led” biennial event where companies who financially contribute for the managing of their end-of-life products, and the organizations that operate stewardship programs can actively participate in a lively forum dedicated to their interests.

The Recycling Council of Alberta (RCA) promotes and facilitates waste reduction, recycling and resource conservation in the Province of Alberta. RCA organizes an annual waste reduction conference that provides valuable educational and networking opportunities. For more information about the Recycling Council of Alberta, please visit www.recycle.ab.ca

This year, CCS and RCA teamed up to bring you a joint conference, themed “Under the Big Top”, to be held from September 30 to October 2, 2015 at The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. Over 500 delegates are expected to attend this year’s event.
