Climate change forum calls for presenters, participants

May 2, 2019

The Forum on Climate Change Initiatives in Huron County is seeking presenters and participants.

Hosted by Dr. Maarten Bokhout, Acting Medical Officer of Health for Huron County, the May 31 event will allow participants to review what is happening in Huron County to mitigate the effects of climate change.

“This is an opportunity for local groups and individuals to share what they are doing to stabilize or reduce the production of greenhouse gases,” says Dr. Bokhout. “We need to limit the adverse effects of global warming, and this forum will help us discuss the efforts underway in Huron County.”

Those who would like to present are asked to submit an outline of their initiative and deliver a presentation of no more than six minutes at the forum. Participants are also welcome to this free event to hear presenters and join the discussion.

The Forum on Climate Change Initiatives in Huron County will take place at the Huron County Health Unit’s Clinton location on Friday, May 31 from 9 a.m. to noon, followed by lunch.

To submit a presentation, attend as a participant, or to learn more, contact the Health Unit at hchu@huroncounty.ca or 519-482-3416.
