This conference is a follow-up to our successful media advisory event of the same name that we hosted with the NATO Association of Canada last October.  At this event, both Hon. Sherri Goodman and Hon. John Conger from the International Military Council on Climate and Security (IMCCS) spoke and provided some excellent insights for the media about security issues relating to climate change.  
Our upcoming conference will be hosted on May 18th and 19th.  To view the website for this conference, visit:
Along with having senior military and intelligence experts speak about the impacts of climate change on human security at this conference, we plan to highlight technologies that can be implemented on a global scale and outline a new large-scale climate finance initiative.   We feel that by involving top military and intelligence experts who speak about the impacts of climate change on human security, we can engage a wide range of people, especially conservative voters and leaders, about the need for large-scale action on climate change.
We are encouraged that several prominent leaders in their respective fields have already accepted our invitation to speak at our conference.  This includes James Grabert, Director, Sustainable Development Mechanisms, United Nations Climate Change Secretariat, General (Ret) Tom Middendorp, Chair, International Military Council on Climate and Security (IMCCS), Colonel Mark Read, Head of Dept of Geography and Environmental Engineering, US Military Academy at West Point, Hon. John Conger, Director, Center for Climate and Security, Daryl Wilson, Executive Director of the Hydrogen Council, and Steve Waygood, Chief Responsible Investment Officer at Aviva Investors.
 
As a result of the Biden Administration making climate-related security matters a major issue, it seems that the media has become very interested in this topic.  For example, doing a search in google news about climate and security lists a steady stream of new articles including one in the Washington Post entitled “UK’s leader warns climate change threatens world security”.  Therefore, we expect considerable media interest in our conference.
