Can BC be a leader in the economy and the environment? What does that mean for our communities?
Climate scientist and author, Dr. Andrew Weaver will be in Duncan on Tuesday, March 19, to share his vision for a cleaner path to prosperity in British Columbia - a future built on clean technology and renewable energy.
Andrew Weaver is a clear and engaging voice on one of the most important issues of our time. He was a lead author in the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change—the group that, with Al Gore, won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. He is Canada Research Chair in climate modeling and analysis at the University of Victoria, and has received numerous international awards and accolades for his leadership and excellence in his field.
From the trenches of climate change research to the front lines of politics, Dr. Weaver is bringing his commitment to science-based climate policy and a low-carbon economy to the role of Deputy Leader of the Green Party of BC.

Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
