College focus on climate

The fight to impact climate change continues, so Okanagan College decided to rally a few troops.

The college held a climate action symposium on Thursday, to coincide with an international event in San Francisco.

Building on Progress was the name of the college event, which brought together stakeholders to focus on climate action, most notably healthy energy systems and sustainable communities. Organizers also aired a live stream of the San Francisco event on a big screen while discussing specific climate matters in the Okanagan.

“Everything helps,” Community Energy Association chief technology officer Peter Robinson said. “I’m much happier to have events like this than to not have events like this. At least there are people getting together and having the conversations. There’s networking happening. There are discussions happening."
