VIU Follow Up: Climate Action Task Force
You may remember that a few months ago, we worked with the VIU EcoClub to write an open letter to VIU asking for the University to make a number of changes in regards to climate change. See our blog post:
VIU recently announced their President's Task Force on Climate Action and Sustainability which will report on progress twice yearly. This is a great step towards the asks from the open letter. Congratulations VIU. See their post here:
AGM and Keynote talk
Our 1st Annual General Meeting happened on January 25th, 2022. Thank you to everyone who attended and everyone who has been part of the Nanaimo Climate Action Hub since it began! We had a great first year and look forward to an even better second year.
First, we'd like to welcome our new board of directors. Many of them you'll recognize from last year but we also have a few new faces. Our About Us page will be updated shortly to reflect the new directors.
Both of our bylaws passed and we had a discussion about the initiatives that were selected as the focus for the upcoming year. Stay tuned for further updates about these initiatives and how you can be involved!
Finally, we'd like to thank Dr. Jessica Stanley for her keynote talk.
To view the talk and some of the other highlights from our AGM please see the video below.
