LETTER: Climate change speaker will return to Parksville in November

On Sept. 11, Parksville/Qualicum KAIROS presented atmospheric/climate scientist Dr. Geoff Strong and his analysis of “UN Sustainable Development Goals in a Changing Climate.”

Dr. Strong was pleased to be able to meet with a large, knowledgeable and engaged audience. This would not have happened so successfully without the assistance of the Parksville Qualicum Beach News in getting information out to the Oceanside community, not only about Dr. Strong’s presentation but also, through your editorial “Climate change really is global” (The NEWS, Sept. 10), about the impacts of climate change. Thank you!

Due to this positive response, Dr. Strong will return on Nov. 19 to continue the discussion at St. Edmund’s Anglican Church in Parksville.

Parksville/Qualicum KAIROS is pleased to be playing a role in supporting increased public awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and our community’s part in achieving these global goals.

We congratulate CFUW PQ Dr. Laura Parisi (Gender Equity and Global Sustainability), CPOC and the Town of Qualicum Beach (Battle of the Bag), the City of Parksville (Parksville adds 97-acre parkland), VIU ElderCollege (Achieving Global Sustainability Saturday Speaker Series) and the many, many others engaged in this community endeavour.

Beulah Paugh, Secretary

Parksville/Qualicum KAIROS
