SHORT PRESS RELEASE – 183 Words
VANCOUVER, BC – Researcher. Climate scientist. Christian. In these few words, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe seems to defy stereotypes. So much so that she was named one of Time Magazine’s 2014 100 Most Influential People and featured in Showtime’s Emmy award-winning series, Years of Living Dangerously.
On May 7, Dr. Hayhoe will be in Vancouver for one night only to share her experiences and distinct perspective at Earthkeeping: A Climate for Change, presented by A Rocha Canada and Regent College.
“Dr. Hayhoe brings a unique voice to a widespread conversation,” says Markku Kostamo, President of A Rocha Canada. “While she joins a long list of scientists working to educate people about climate change, she connects those facts to her values and offers a new take on how people can take action.”
Special guests at the event will include Peter and Miranda Harris, founders of A Rocha International and musical guests Sheree Plett and Jeremy Eisenhauer.
