Join us to learn how communities fit into the national 100% renewable energy discussion

In this Carbon Talk, Dr. Jose Etcheverry, Co-Chair of the Sustainable Energy Initiative and Professor at York University, will look at safe strategies to help Canada achieve 100% renewable energy and prosperity at the community level.
