Pathways to Sustainability
From 20 to 22 November 2014, the 11th Annual Conference of the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation will bring the most knowledgeable and innovative experts to Toronto to share the latest thinking on the ultimate collective action problem: global warming.
Recent climate disasters are causing climate change to strike home for more and more people, but growing awareness continues to be outstripped by geophysical change. At the same time, breakthroughs in technology, communications, and behavioural science are succeeding one another rapidly, and political and economic upheaval is opening the door to new balances of power.
Weathering Change: Pathways to Sustainability in Canada will ask executives from the insurance and financial sectors, social entrepreneurs, an advisor to the US military, energy experts, and some of Canada’s top economists to take a hard look at such topics as food security, the future of international governance arrangements, and Canada’s energy landscape. Join the conversation about whether the way out should be global or local, or both; whether avant-garde technical innovations can be made feasible with the right fiscal policies and legal frameworks; and whether reframing the climate crisis to transform culture, behaviour, and political participation can clear a durable path towards sustainability in Canada and beyond.
All sessions will take place at:
