The Grey Bruce Healthy Communities Partnership invites everyone to participate in the 2020 Virtual Climate Change Conference on October 28, 2020.

  • Dr. Blair Feltmate, Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation, University of Waterloo
  • Dr. Sonja Klinsky, Senior Sustainability Scientist, Arizona State University
