How to mitigate climate change in Nova Scotia
Join us in Halifax for a discussion on climate change and options
Thursday, September 1st at 5:30 pm
Lindsay Children’s Room, 2nd Floor Halifax Central Library, 5440 Spring Garden Road, Halifax
Join Nature Conservancy of Canada’s carbon and climate change expert, Rob Wilson, for an introduction on the importance of conservation in response to climate change, as well as key aspects of NCC’s work in this field.
Rob will discuss the importance of conserving natural areas to protect their critical role in absorbing and holding carbon. He will also present the potential use of forest carbon projects to generate offsets as a meaningful response to greenhouse gas emissions, while benefiting wildlife and people. This short and spirited presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m. and be followed by informal discussion on this very timely topic.
Rob Wilson is currently the Director of Carbon Finance at Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and holds a B.A., an M.B.A. and a Diploma in Resource Management (Forestry) from the University of Toronto. He is responsible for managing NCC’s carbon finance program and conservation offset activities.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada runs a world-class, conservation-based forest carbon project on the Darkwoods conservation lands in British Columbia. The offsets generated by this project are used to finance NCC’s further conservation and long term care of this iconic landscape.
