Source: Times Colonist.

Join the adaptation community for an exciting talk on April 27 in Victoria.

Tim O’Riordan, PhD, is an emeritus professor of environmental sciences at the University of East Anglia, U.K. and an academic adviser to the University of Victoria’s POLIS Water Sustainability Project. He’s also the brother of Jon O’Riordan, PhD, ACT senior adviser and also strategic adviser to the WSP.

On the 27th, these two will give a public lecture on the hard work of hope at the University of Victoria.

A recent article in the Time Colonist highlights the event, and the importance of this work:

“The impact of humanity on our planet is often cast in a negative light. However, it can also be a force for good. Humans are endowed with immense intellectual capacity to understand and to foresee. The hard work of hope centres on the ability of humans faced with a crisis to exercise extraordinary creative solutions to safeguard all species over all coming generations.”
