The provincial government is holding public sessions around Newfoundland and Labrador this summer, asking for input on a new climate change strategy as it attempts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

By 2020, the province hopes to have reduced greenhouse gas by 10 per cent below the provincial levels for 1990.

In addition to the in-person consultations, three online, real-time discussions will be held.
