In order to spark new climate conversations, we run and contribute to a wide range of public events.
Webinar: Carbon Pricing Narratives in New Brunswick, Canada - 27 January 2017
Can we talk about carbon pricing in ways that keep the door open to dialogue and increase understanding of and/or support for carbon pricing? Research over the last two years, including most recently in Canada, shows that it is possible to find frames and narratives that resonate with both the centre-left and centre-right.
This webinar will be hosted by Dr. Louise Comeau, Honorary Research Associate at the University of New Brunswick, and George Marshall. They will focus on New Brunswick but speak to comparisons with the rest of Canada, in particular Ontario.
