Get inspired during the 2022 Kingston Climate Change Symposium! The symposium kicks off Jan. 13 with an incredible line-up of speakers from across Canada including Nobel Peace Prize Award Nominee and climate activist Sheila Watt-Cloutier, meteorologist, science reporter, and author Johanna Wagstaffe, and broadcaster Ali Hassan as host. Register for free!
While you wait for the symposium to begin, enjoy and learn from these recommendations.
Have you thought about what will be most important to you if you become seriously ill or injured, or near the end of life? Who will speak for you if you are unable, and have you clearly communicated your beliefs, values, and wishes to them? Advance care planning helps you arrange for future care needs to ensure your directions will be respected and carried out.
Come to an online Compassionate Communities Kingston seminar on the second Tuesday of each month from Jan. 11 through May 10. Those who have attended previous sessions and have questions about advance care planning are always welcome to register for a new session!
A conversation with friends, paging through a book, listening to an audiobook... our online Grownup Storytime combines all three, bringing you a live reader, great stories, and a chance to connect with other people.
The six-week series runs from 1 to 2 p.m. every Monday from Jan. 10 through Feb. 14. You can have lunch, work on a hobby, or just sit and take a break from your busy day while listening to short stories or chapters from longer works. Come for one session, all six, or something in-between.
