The Year of Climate Action Launch
On November 26th, 2020, Lakehead confirmed its leadership on climate change by announcing it is divesting its endowment of fossil fuel stocks, the sixth Canadian university to do so. Building on this accomplishment and recognizing the need for more bold steps to tackle climate change, Lakehead University is declaring 2021/2022 a Year of Climate Action (YOCA).

The evening will feature opening remarks from the Provost and Vice-President (Academic), Dr. David Barnett. Students, faculty, and staff will share how they are getting involved in the YOCA. Join us to learn more about the YOCA, how you can get involved, and our #36ClimateActions campaign. Dr. Andrew Dean, Vice-President Research and Innovation, and Dr. Lindsay Galway, Canada Research Chair in Socio-Ecological Health, will MC the event.

The evening will culminate with a keynote presentation from Clayton Thomas-Müller, campaigner, media producer, organizer, facilitator, public speaker and author on Indigenous rights and environmental and economic justice. The presentation, titled "Colonization Caused Climate Change, and Indigenous Rights Are Climate Justice", will be followed by a Q&A.

"These are tough conversations to have, but we need to have them. Climate change is the civil rights issue of our generation right now. It unites every facet of society." - Clayton Thomas-Müller
