This award honours Tim Flannery’s relentless contributions to not only the science of climate change, but also shaping public opinion on the matter in a respectful and engaging way. The Blaney Award  is presented by SFU every second year to an individual who has demonstrated, internationally, excellence in the use of dialogue to further the understanding of complex and profound public issues.

As Tim points out in this tribute video made for the occasion, maintaining respectful and meaningful relationships with climate skeptics is vital as it moves the conversation forward. ACT Executive Director Deb Harford is a Climate Solutions Fellow with the Centre for Dialogue and ACT was very pleased to be a part of this event.
