In this session, Susan Todd, CPA, CA showed us why financial leaders need to be involved and help you identify the key messages to win their involvement. Thanks Sue for an amazing presentation and for sharing the slides with us!!

The Citizen’s Guide to Climate Success

If you miss our last edition of the Sustainability Dialogues with Mark Jaccard, you can review his presentation here. Mr. Jaccard, shared with us how climate-concerned citizens can overcome myths that hinder us from acting in time to prevent extreme climate impacts. Their actions can involve personal consumption choices like electric vehicles, heat pumps, and so forth, but these only have an effect if citizens are also engaged in the political process and civil society to elect and support climate-sincere politicians.

Thanks, Mark for a wonderful presentation!!!
