Dear friends,

We hope this message finds you well in these trying times. We know these past several weeks have been overwhelming, and that people have been focused on adapting and looking after their communities and loved ones. We’ve also seen that this pandemic has shifted the way many people think about the climate crisis and our capacity to meet the challenge. We look forward to discussing this going forward! For right now we are extending an invitation to an upcoming webinar series that we are pleased to be sponsoring.

The Caring Sustainably for Saskatchewan Collaboration presents_

Communities Inspired for Environmental Acton has led the organizing effort for this exciting webinar series exploring approaches to addressing climate change across our province, in urban and rural settings and in a variety of sectors. Every Tuesday and Thursday from May 12 to June 16 there will be a noon-hour presentation featuring 1-2 presentations from a variety of experts, as well as a chance to ask questions and have a conversation. Participants may join via Zoom (registration required) or watch streams on YouTube or Facebook, courtesy of the Saskatchewan Environmental Society (SES). You can find details and registration at the link below, along with a schedule for the series. We hope you’ll join us as we explore what people in the province have been doing and where opportunities exist to take things much further!
