GreenPac Forum with Aaron Freeman – September 25, 2015

GreenPac Forum with Aaron FreemanGreenPAC exists to address one of the most serious challenges the environmental sector faces: translating Canadians’ environmental concerns into political action. They are doing this by channeling Canadians’ broad but diffuse support for environmental progress towards recruiting, nominating, electing, and supporting specific environmental leaders from across the political spectrum. Less than one month before our next federal election, join founder and president Aaron Freeman for a discussion on the state of environmental issues in the campaigns so far, and on GreenPAC’s plans leading up to October 19th & beyond.

This event is free, but please RSVP:
