March 21st: in Regina – Responding to the Climate Crisis: a Human Rights Approach

We regret to inform you that we have decided to postpone our event — a forum on climate change — we really appreciate your interest and we hope to reschedule to sometime in the summer or the fall. Climate change is as much of a crisis to us as COVID-19, so we hope we can get this back on track soon. 

 

 

Join us in Regina on:

Saturday, March 21st,

for an exciting and important Forum:  

“Responding to the Climate Crisis:  a Human Rights Approach.”   

From 1:00pm to 5:00pm.

This event will be held at the University of Regina – Research and Innovation Centre (RIC), room 119. (Find directions to the RIC here.)

See our panelists (and their bios) here.

This forum will provide an opportunity to consider and take action about the issues related to climate change from a multidisciplinary approach.

The event will be co-hosted by the University of Regina Amnesty International Club and the Regina  Amnesty International Community Group.

The conference is free but registration is required- register here.

Travel & Childcare Subsidies

We have a limited amount of money available for support for the cost of travel and childcare for this forum. As a result, our priority will be to consider providing support to people who are carpooling. We will not be able to assist with the cost of hotels. In addition, because the cost of the travel from Moose Jaw to Regina is relatively small we will not be making it a priority to assist with this. (If you do need to apply for travel subsidy from Moose Jaw please let us know). We are not able to directly provide childcare at the conference however we encourage you to make your own arrangements and apply for assistance to cover this cost. Travel and childcare subsidies need to be pre-approved. If you are applying for support for travel or childcare, please do so by March 16th.  A committee of volunteers will review your application and contact you as soon as possible after the deadline for receiving applications. You can download the application as a Word document here.

You can help make this a success by inviting your friends using this facebook event here
