Come join us for this lecture and discussion lead by two groups of McGill students.
They will present the results of their research on:
1. “Re-Wilding the Mile End”: How can citizens harmonize the interests of humans and nature in the newly-protected green space called Le Champ des Possibles – right around the corner from Shakti?
2. “Vermont vs. Tar Sand: Supply and Demand”: How grave is the threat that oil from the Alberta tar sands will flow through Quebec, Vermont, New Hampshire, and then Maine in a pipeline that is already decades old? Since Vermonters have strongly opposed this prospect, how can they reduce their own oil consumption by shifting away from a transportation system dominated by private automobiles?
This is a free event , and a potluck! Please bring a dish to share (if you can) and/or your own bowl and spoon!
