Like many nations around the world grappling with climate change and threats to the natural environment and public health, Canada is taking action to address these challenges, including ratification of the Paris Agreement and a pledge to reduce domestic greenhouse gas emissions by thirty percent in 2030 from 2005 levels. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called for a national carbon pricing plan among other policies, at the same time that the government is making strategic investments to sustain the country’s transition to a clean-growth economy. Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a conversation with the Hon. Catherine McKenna, Canadian Minister of Environment and Climate Change. Minister McKenna will offer brief remarks focused on Canada’s work in climate change, but most of the time will be devoted to answering students' questions.  --- This event is open only to current students and faculty.
