Change 2016: be a part of the change
Change is in the air in Yukon.
From the way we take care of our environment to our relationship with First Nations and the rest of Canada, Yukon is at a crossroads. And Change 2016 is the forum for progressive Yukoners who are looking for something different than politics as usual.
Change 2016's high-profile keynote speakers, internationally renowned climate activist Bill McKibben and seniors' advocate Susan Eng, will be joined by a number of other panellists and speakers to discuss ideas and strategies to build a truly progressive Yukon.
Join us on April 2nd for Change 2016. Be a part of the change.
Change 2016 keynote speaker Bill McKibben is an internationally renowned author, environmentalist, and activist. In 1988 he wrote The End of Nature, the first book for a common audience about global warming. Since then he has published a dozen more books, and in doing so was named to Foreign Policy’s inaugural list of the world’s 100 most important global thinkers. He is a co-founder and Senior Advisor at 350.org, an international climate campaign that works in 188 countries around the world.
Seniors' advocate Susan Eng is also taking the stage to deliver an address to Change 2016. During her time as CARP’s head of advocacy, Eng advocated on behalf of over 300,000 CARP members on issues like pension reform, protecting elders from abuse and developing stronger continuing care services. Eng has also served her community as chair of the Metropolitan Toronto Police Services Board, a member of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association board, and was honoured by the YWCA with their Women of Distinction Award for her public service.
