Vancouver area students are invited to attend the second climate change conference, this time focusing on the Alberta Tar Sands on Friday, December 10, 2010 at Windermere Secondary.

C3: Enter The Athabasca Tar Sands, will bring together Vancouver-area youth to learn about the Tar Sands and inspire action on environmental and social issues.

This year conference features speakers including Jim Hoggan, a renowned public-relations professional who'll deliver the keynote address. Also presenting are Ben West from the Wilderness Committee, Andrea Macdonald from the No Tankers campaign and the Dogwood Initiative, and Windermere Alumni - Neelam Khare and Peggy Lam.
