Environment and the 2015 Federal Election: How to Talk About It

A\J was thrilled to host a roundtable discussion at the Environmental Studies Association of Canada’s 2015 conference (ESAC 2015), held at Congress 2015 in June.

A panel of experts, including Members of Parliament, leaders of national not-for-profits and experts on policy and climate change, came together to discuss how Canadians can raise environmental and sustainability concerns in the upcoming federal election.

Here’s what some of the speakers had to say after a thoughtful and insightful discussion.
