Keynote Speaker Joanna Kerr from Greenpeace 
“Stopping climate change and environmental degradation are the most urgent priorities of my generation”

Emily Gilbert from the University of Toronto
Gilbert is an Associate Professor, cross-appointed between the Canadian Studies Program and the Department of Geography at the University of Toronto… She has become interested in the militarization of the Arctic, as border politics heat up because of the impacts of climate change.

Sheila Zurbrigg an Independent Health History Teacher
“The implications of global warming for the modern portion of this health trajectory are enormous, with climate destabilisation affecting global weather systems, rain patterns, agricultural harvests, and thus directly food security.The risks are profound, and most poorly understood amongst ‘northern’ societies, the principal drivers of climate change.”
