Coal and Communities Virtual Town Hall

From: $0.00

Alberta’s Rocky Mountains and Foothills are facing an unprecedented threat; coal mining exploration and development in the Eastern slopes has the capacity to pollute vital headwaters and completely dismantle fragile ecosystems.

AWA, in partnership with the Coal Policy Working Group and other ENGOs and concerned citizens, is hosting a series of virtual public “town halls” that explore particular aspects and impacts of coal mining in Alberta. Each town hall in this series is comprised of a panel of speakers that will share their expertise and experiences with the audience, in addition to answering questions.

The first Town Hall of the series focused on Coal and Health, and featured Lars Sander-Green from Wildsight, retired biologists Kirby Smith and Lorne Fitch, Peter Sainsbury from Climate and Health Australia, and Dr. Tim Takaro at Simon Fraser University’s Faculty of Health Sciences. The second Town Hall focused on Coal and Economics with talks from Chris Severson-Baker of the Pembina Institute, Cornelis Kolijn of Teck Resources, and Willem Langenberg and Ian Urquhart, both from the University of Alberta.

The third Town Hall will be on May 18th, 2021 at 6:30 – 8:00 PM with the discussion topic being Coal and Communities. Panel speakers will explore challenge coal mining poses to communities in Australia and Alberta’s Eastern Slopes.

In the past I've seen chaos in the hills. And because I study cumulative effects, I know that everything is related. So I've come to realize that there is a big picture and we won't get there unless we plan along the way.
