Part 6: Final Design Decisions

Our final free event in the Capping Carbon | Trading Talk panel series on developing Nova Scotia’s cap-and-trade system. Over the last four months we’ve hosted a series of public panel discussions to learn more about how cap-and-trade will impact our shared environment, society, and economy. 

In this series finale we reported back with what we’ve heard from the first five panels, and panelists will pitch their ideas for how to design an effective and equitable cap-and-trade system for Nova Scotia. We also opened the floor for a lively discussion and Q&A with the public.
