Please join the FGL Society and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Senior Research Associate Dr. Sara Hastings-Simon, presenting a webinar titled Climate Emergency and Canada’s Energy Future on Wednesday, March 24, 2021 from 10:00am – 11:30am (MT).
An energy transition is underway, spurring dramatic shifts in how the world produces and consumes energy. In Canada, that reality has been met by debate and policy planning about lowering the carbon footprint of the existing oil and gas production and about what role it can or should play in an increasingly decarbonizing world. – Sarah Hastings-Simon, Board member, Emissions Reductions Alberta
We invite you to join us for the first of a series of events on Canada’s energy transition, clean energy and renewables, energy systems and infrastructure, sustainable financing, labour and a just transition and more.
fgl society is thrilled to once again bring together leaders and policy makers in business, government, civil society and academia. Our goal is to make a unique contribution to raising public awareness and engagement in Canada’s energy future, climate change action, and the path to Net Zero by 2050.
This forum and those that follow seek to address central issues, and how we can ensure innovation led economic growth leads to a greener, more inclusive, and sustainable world.
Our speakers will look at questions such as:
• Are Canadians going to be active participants in creating our future?
• What will this future look like?
• How are we going to get there?
• Who will benefit?
• What are our responsibilities and to whom?
We hope you’ll join us for this year’s open global business forum!
