Organized by: University of Waterloo

The panel “Envisioning the future of low carbon, resilient communities: key ingredients of a just, inclusive transition” presented by the University of Waterloo will explore a diversity of provocative interventions on Canada’s accelerated transition to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The goal of the panel is to expose and explore potential co-benefits and tradeoffs inherent in the transition, and consider the ways that evidence-based policy might facilitate a just and inclusive approach to deep decarbonization in Canada. The panel discussion will feature Canadian and international subject matter experts, and will be followed by an open discussion with the audience.
