Bass Guitarist 2019- Climate Change Hero

January 26, 2019 @ 9:00 PM - 10:30 PM

eMERGE  Guelph and Royal City Hero present:

Bass guitarist, Karen Farbridge, is the 2019 Royal City Hero – Climate Change Edition.


While Karen has played in several garage bands over the years, unfortunately none of them enabled her to make her real mark on climate change. Instead she’s made a profound impact on people and communities around the country – without becoming a rock star.

She went from grass roots organizing with her early work at OPIRG, to a PhD in Zoology and then became the first female Mayor in Guelph. All of that (with the exception of the guitar playing) enabled her to become an urban connector helping communities and governments across the country fight climate change in practical and achievable ways.

Join us – and our Making Box partners – as we put the fun into climate change with our 2019 Royal City Climate Change Hero: Dr. Karen Farbridge.
