Spaces and Flows - New HEAD Talks video

See video

We have just released a new video on CRC HEAD Talks. This video was a presentation made to the recent Spaces and Flows conference in Amsterdam, on November 23, 2013. Professor Ann Dale, Dr. Lenore Newman and Rob Newell explore what makes a place special, how people move through a space, what makes a person keep coming back again and again. The dynamic interplay of place, space, and time is examined through the video's imagery and flow.

See video

This animation conveys the issues that arise from 'the tragedy of the commons' (Hardin, 1968), a situation of resource depletion and/or pollution generation through people acting in their own self-interest around a common good (i.e., the environment). The animation then shows that these issues of resource depletion and adapting to new environmental conditions can be addressed through cooperative solutions.

Provincial Adaptation Case Studies

Two new case studies have been posted on the MC3 website. These studies provide province-level context to community climate change plans and initiatives by referring to provincial programs and their role in enabling local climate action. The case studies are available in both English and French.
