[Public Event] Climate Ventures Mornings: A Conversation with Melina Laboucan-Massimo

The Centre for Social Innovation’s Climate Ventures Mornings* are a chance to hear from innovators and leaders working for climate justice and climate solutions. You’ll gain a greater understanding of the different ways in which we can tackle the climate crisis, and hear some inspiring personal stories along the way.

On Wednesday, May 27, we’re sitting down with Melina Laboucan-Massimo, longtime climate justice campaigner and host of APTN’s Power to the People. Join us as we discuss Indigenous climate action, renewable energy, and a just recovery to the COVID-19 pandemic.

*We’re holding this month’s CV Mornings in the afternoon, to accommodate our Pacific coast friends!
