What Matters Now: A Public Outreach Event

Research Matters is a public campaign which explores how Ontario university research affects everyday life and improves the way people live, work, and play.  On May 21, 2014, they will be hosting What Matters Now: Kingston, which will see five Ontario university researchers "pitch" their research ideas to a public audience who will ultimately decide what matters most to them now.  Queen's own Professor Warren Mabee (Geography, School of Policy Studies) will discuss his work on policy and technologies for renewable energy and will explore the question "is 'waste' a relative term?"  The event will take place at Kingston's Memorial Hall (City Hall) from 6:30-9:30 pm, and all are welcome to attend.
