News from Canada + Engineers and Geoscientists BC - Continuing Professional Development Event
I'll start out with some news from Canada:
The Government of Canada has created yesterday an expert panel on adapting to climate change.The Expert Panel will support the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change.
One of the Panel members is Joanna Kyriazis, a lawyer based out of BC, and now in Ottawa. Engineers and Geoscientists, BC has partnered up with Fraser Basin Council to have Joanna Kyriazis deliver a webinar about Climate Law for Professionals, a course Joanna has co-taught in the past through the firm Zizzo Strategy. Zizzo has been offering this as a continuing professional ddevelopment event through Engineers Canada.
Here’s your chance to the Fraser Basin Council’s webinar delivered by Joanna on Legal Implications of Climate Change for Professionals: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/8775680973427162626.
