What the Pandemic Teaches Us About Climate Change
Featuring Mitchell Beer
Thursday Aug 6 @ 12-1 Pm
Here’s a chance to share your experience and hear from others about what the last few months of the pandemic have been like for you, what you’ve learned along the way, what’s become more (or less) important to you, and what those lessons learned can tell us about action on climate change. This BBL is part of a series of local listening sessions aimed at distilling lessons from the pandemic that can help guide climate action and outreach.
Mitchell Beer is a longtime Hubber and publisher of The Energy Mix, a free e-digest on climate change, energy, and carbon-free futures. He’s worked on climate change since 1997, clean energy since 1977. A proudest moment was building a wind turbine out of wooden stir sticks with his then-11-year-old daughter, and improv comedy practices are sometimes the best part of his week.
Brown Bag Lunches are Impact Hub Ottawa’s weekly lunch & learns led by Hubbers, for members and non-members alike. Topics vary each week, but you’re always sure to learn something new!
Can’t make it at 12 PM? Register and we’ll email you a recording of the presentation to watch at your convenience.
