These days, it is almost a cliché to say that we are at a turning point in world history. Everyone knows we must reduce global carbon emissions dramatically in the next decade or we’re headed for disaster. But what are the best practices for turning the ship around?  350 Kingston is proud to present the ‘Turning the Tide on Climate’ Speaker Series.  This series will allow you to hear from Kingston-based climate scientists and activists on the front lines of the climate emergency and to give you a chance to ask them your most pressing questions. The series welcomes people who share some concern for climate change but would like to understand more about it. We want participants to have ample opportunity to ask questions so each week’s Zoom event will start with a 15–20-minute presentation by the speaker, followed by a 40-minute question period. What are your questions? What do you want to know more about? This is your chance to ask. Please RSVP here  to receive the Zoom meeting link by email each week on the day of the event.

We Need You

With activism—and especially with climate activism—it’s easy to feel like the problems are so big you can’t do anything to make change.

We get that. That’s why we’re working together. The more voices we have calling for action, the stronger that call becomes.

Please get involved.
