Climate Change Q&A with Local Whistler Experts

On Wednesday, October 14, AWARE held an online event in collaboration with groups around the world. After a screening from Tedx of several different speeches (including one from Prince William!) for their COUNTDOWN event, AWARE gathered local experts to bring the discussion to Whistler and highlight what’s in store for Whistler in the coming years and what we can do to act now.
