Dr. Joe Vipond has worked as an emergency physician for fifteen years in Calgary, is a clinical lecturer at the University of Calgary and a member of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment. He is current working at Patan Hospital doing training for local doctors. In 2012 he and his colleagues embarked on a mission to rid his home province of Alberta from one of its worst sources of air pollution: coal fired power plants. Three years of media work, meetings with politicians, social media, and public appearances resulted in a legislated shutdown of all 18 power plants by 2030, announced in November 2015. His advocacy work can be seen as a possible model for similar substantive change for air pollution work here in Nepal. Visit albertacoalphaseout.ca or www.facebook.com/
