Severe Storms in Ontario: How can we adapt?

Climate change has placed Ontario in a precarious position when it comes to severe weather. In the coming years, intense storms will become a common reality across the province.

The good news? We can adapt. Many low-cost solutions for the buildings we live and work in will better prepare us for this unprecedented risk.

Western Engineering researcher and professor, Greg Kopp, will take us through a captivating discussion on how the spatial patterns of severe storms are changing, and what you can do to meet these challenges.

Join us for this insightful talk, reception and self-guided tour of Our Climate Quest, a hands-on exhibit that shows visitors how small steps can lead to big change.

Event will be suitable for mature children who want to learn more about climate.
