Who will be tending your garden when the ocean rises? An octopus? A sea star?

Regions around the world are experiencing climate change impacts such as droughts, floods, wildfires, and heat waves, while planning for the long-term effects of sea level rise and coastal storms. These stressors are driving damages and increased costs for communities, and increasing the risk of mass migration.

SFU's Adaptation to Climate Change Team (ACT), the Pacific Water Research Centre in Faculty of Environment and Dialogue Programs in partnership with the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, the City of Vancouver, Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation and the Vancouver Aquarium are pleased to invite you to the fourth talk in the Octopus’s Garden Series featuring Dr. Saleemul Huq, Director, Centre for Climate Change and Development, London, U.K. (via video conference); James Horncastle, Lecturer, Hellenic Studies, Simon Fraser University and Anna Zhuo, Co-founder, Climate Migrants and Refugees Project, Vancouver.
