As principal of <a href="http://glave.com" rel="nofollow">Glave Communications</a>, I convey research, solutions, and policies that advance and enable the global low-carbon, clean-energy economy. I'm a strategist, author, and award-winning writer and editor with 18+years of experience producing high-impact communications products and services for consumer and business audiences. I'm also special advisor to Clean Energy Canada and a certified Climate Reality Leader.
Kim Slater knows that Canada can reinvent itself, and shift from being a fossil fuel dealer to a clean energy leader. She knows her elected leaders can make it happen. But she isn't waiting for them to take the lead. In fact, she's starting without them, running across British Columbia to talk with Canadians about more sustainable forms of energy.
