The Planet is Changing, Why Aren’t We? is a free presentation about climate change that will be held Saturday, May 25, downstairs at the Red Deer Public Library.

Three guest speakers will talk about the importance of making the transition to a fossil fuel-free future, and “stopping the destruction of our liveable planet.”

Guest speakers are Bronwen Tucker, organizer and researcher with Oil Change International; Regan Boychuk of Reclaim Alberta; and Emma Jackson, organizer with Climate Justice Edmonton.

The “lively and informative” public forum, with presentations and discussions, will be presented by the Council of Canadians, Red Deer and area chapter.

It starts at 2 p.m. in the Snell Auditorium of the downtown library.

While there’s no admission charge, donations to defray expenses are gratefully accepted. Refreshments will be provided.
