March 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join the United Nations Association in Canada – Vancouver Branch, the UBC School of Social Work and the Liu Institute for Global Issues at the UBC School of Public Policy and Global Affairs for a discussion on mobilizing Canada for the climate emergency with Seth Klein, founding British Columbia Director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, as part of the annual Richard B. Splane Lecture in Social Policy.

Seth Klein’s talk will highlight key ideas and lessons from his 2020 book A Good War: Mobilizing Canada for the Climate Emergency. The book explores how we can align our politics and economy in Canada with what the science says we must urgently do to address the climate crisis. Klein will explore the connections between inequality and climate mobilization, and he will explain why tackling inequality and economic insecurity is vital to winning bold climate action.
