***********************************************************

This conference discusses the various impacts that climate change has on our communities and those most vulnerable to global warming's impacts. It highlights the economic and social impacts that environmental changes have and work that is being done to strengthen communities both in Canada and the world. We expect speakers to share stories of resilience and the opportunities and challenges that lay ahead.


Research indicates that the Earth’s climate is changing at a rate that has exceeded most scientific forecasts. Some families and communities have already started to suffer from disasters and the consequences of climate change, which has forced them to leave their homes in search of a new beginning. The paradox in climate change is that the least responsible for Carbon Emissions are the most vulnerable to climate change. Today we estimate that, as of the year of 2030, climate change is expected to contribute to approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year. Especially in developing countries, It will be the factor of increasing existing social inequalities and economic well-being.

This event aims to talk about the intersectionality of environmental sustainability. It will also be an occasion to display the issues of the most vulnerable population in the world.
