About this event:
We will be joining Science World’s cafe scientifique on science in Canada’s North. Join us for discussion, debate and refreshments with local scientists and researchers to consider how northern research is relevant to all Canadians. We’ll delve into the wide range of exploration taking place in Canada’s north, track how global warming affects the ecosystems and species of this area, and discuss what this might mean to us locally.
Along with our interesting experts, there will be a selection of complimentary appetizers provided by One Planet Catering, a “Green” catering company which uses local, organic ingredients with no pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, growth hormones or artificial additives. We will also have a cash bar with a selection of organic wine and beer.
