Join us as we revisit Jennie Pederson, a scholar seeking to apply modern research to plant conservation in the face of climate change; Alison Thompson, director of the Canadian Geothermal Energy  Association who has fascinating insights into the often overlooked geothermal energy potential in Alberta; and Martin Nielsen, an architect from the Centre for Interactive Research on Sustainability (CIRS), a building which is not only net-zero, but net-positive. If you’re intrigued by how this works, then be sure to take a listen.

 
It’s a lot to take in. Luckily, we’re in this together.
