On the occasion of the 5th anniversary of the Paris Climate Agreement and in preparation of the Glasgow Conference in 2021, Corporate Knights Magazine, with the support of the French Embassy in Canada, the German Embassy in Canada and the British High Commission, has organized on December 9th an online conference about environment.
While the need to reduce the carbon impact is more imperative than ever and it is necessary to preserve our ecosystem, the question of the implication of the public and the civil society is primordial. That is why this conference tried to answer the following question: what will it take to move the masses to act for the climate before it is too late?
Distinguished Canadian discussed and debated about this topic. Margaret Atwood, the famous author of The Handmaid’s Tale, scientific and broadcaster David Suzuki and the nominee activist for Nobel Peace Prize Sheila Watt-Cloutier, had the opportunity to exchange for more than an hour.
