Climate change, profits, green jobs UBCO lecture

Seth Klein looks at how B.C. can be carbon-zero with more equality and thousands of good jobs.

The hot topics of equality, jobs, and climate justice will be the focus of a special presentation with Seth Klein next week.

Klein’s talk, Climate Justice in B.C.: Re-Imagining a Good Green Life, looks at how B.C. can be carbon-zero with more equality and thousands of good jobs. He will share key findings and policy solutions produced by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternative’s Climate Justice Project.

Klein is the B.C. director for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA). Much of his research deals primarily with welfare policy, poverty, inequality and economic security.

His talk in Vernon is free and open to the public, and is co-sponsored by UBC Okanagan, the Sustainable Environment Network Society, the Canadian Federation of University Women and the North Okanagan Shuswap Green Party.
