The Council of Canadians has joined as a partner of an important International Conference: Cochabamba +1: Climate Justice and Ecological Alternatives conference.
Date: Friday, April 15, 2011 – 19:00 – Sunday, April 17, 2011 – 13:00
Location: University of Quebec at Montreal, J.A. DeSève Pavillion, local DS-R510; 320 St-Catherine Street East, Montreal
Maude will be one of the keynote speakers along with Pablo Solon, Bolivian ambassador to the United Nations, André Bélisle, President of the Quebec Coalition Against Atmospheric Pollution and Judy Rebick, founding publisher of Rabble.ca and author of Transforming Power: From the Personal to the Political.
You can find a list of a number of notable speakers from across Canada and internationally on their webpage here. I will be speaking to lessons we’ve drawn from our experiences on the caravan leading up to the Cancun climate talks.
Simultaneous translation will be available throughout the conference.
This is a key event for advancing the Canadian climate justice movement, helping to connecting organizers in union, eNGO, NGO and social movement circles.
The Council will have a team of people attending, participating and reporting back in blogs, and more.
Encourage others to visit the website, talk with others about the conference and attend! I hope to see you there!
