Featuring Dr. Ann Dale and Dr. Leslie King

What is the university’s role in building global capacity for climate change action? The Paris Agreement of 2015 reaffirmed the importance of education, training, awareness and access to information as key strategies for enhancing climate action. Furthermore, under the capacity-building Articles of the Agreement, all parties are urged to support the capacity and ability of developing countries by, among other things, "facilitating… relevant aspects of education, training and public awareness" (Article 11).

Join our Dialogue on Climate Action on October 14, 2016 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Centre for Dialogue. We’ll explore…

  • What role does and should Royal Roads University play in implementing the education, training, awareness and capacity-building aspirations of the Paris Agreement? 
  • What are we already doing, and what should we do more of?
  • What opportunities for international collaboration and support are available to Royal Roads faculty, staff, students and researchers?

Moderated by Todd Thexton, the dialogue will begin with a panel presentation featuring two of Royal Roads’ climate action leaders: Dr. Ann Dale and Dr. Leslie King. An opportunity for small group exploration and discussion will follow the panel presentation.
