First Things First Okanagan is in the process of finalizing details for a visit by Simon Donner to Penticton on the weekend of March 6th. Simon is the founder of Maribo and an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of British Columbia whose research focuses on why the climate matters to ecosystems and society.
We expect Simon to cover a number of issues related to climate change, including the basic science, oceans, sea-level rise and international policy and adaptation challenges (especially in the developing world). This will be a great opportunity for Okanagan residents to better understand the urgent need to act on environmental issues and ask questions of an internationally recognized climatologist.
Please pencil in the date and you can read more of the work of Simon and his fellow researchers here.
