The Carbon Code (Public Lecture) by Dr. Brett Favaro
August 22, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for a free public lecture as part of our Ocean Series! (Doors open 6:30pm)
The carbon code: Why you should become a climate change hero
Climate change is real, dangerous, and caused by us. But what can we do about it? In this talk, we will discuss the Carbon Code: a code of ethics that can guide individuals or big organizations in their quest to become climate leaders. We will cover how fighting climate change is not altruistic, and that developing good climate habits makes you healthier, wealthier, and happier. We will focus especially on climate change and the oceans, and explore how carbon pollution is harming the marine environment – and how this poses a special threat to an ocean province like Newfoundland and Labrador. This talk will be challenging, informative, and a little scary – and will leave you inspired to take on climate change and help build a sustainable future for yourself and those you love.
