Negotiating the Climate Change Web: A Community Vision is an innovative gathering, bringing together Nova Scotian stakeholders – including government, NGOs and the public – to discuss the interrelationships between trade, environment, society and climate change.

It is about engaging the abilities and experience of community members to strive toward true sustainability by conceiving recommendations and goals applicable to issues being addressed in the G8 and G20 meetings.

While discussions abound on climate change’s association with weather pattern shifts and natural disasters, little is communicated about its implications for international trade and political dynamics. This event will establish breakout sessions to focus on three under-represented aspects of the climate change web: trade, policy and climate change; climate change’s impact on the global south (emphasizing indigenous and feminist perspectives); and climate change and society. A fourth breakout session will bring climate change home, discussing its direct impacts on Nova Scotia and local mitigation efforts.
