Climate resilience means we must learn to provide for our essential needs without fossil fuels. Curt Hull, Project Manager at Climate Change Connection, investigates how we might farm, heat all our buildings, and move goods and people sustainably with the help of Manitoba’s abundant renewable electricity.
Service Coordinator: Cate Ziegler
A forum on Pathways to Zero Carbon Buildings follows the service at noon CDT.
