Energy Transition & Economic Transformation: Tim Flannery in Conversation
Wednesday, 16 October 2013 from 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM (MDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Though half a world apart, Australia and Alberta have much in common. Both are resource economies facing the challenge of a fast-changing global energy landscape. Both also face choices and opportunities in the transition to a lower-carbon economy.
Clean Energy Canada at Tides Canada and Alberta Climate Dialogue at the University of Alberta are pleased to present Professor Tim Flannery in conversation with Dr. Robert Page.
Tim Flannery is the Chief of the Australian Climate Concil, a new non-governmental organization providing information about the science of climate change. His books include The Future Eaters and the New York Times bestseller The Weather Makers—widely regarded as one of the pivotal public works on climate change.
Bob Page is director of the Enbridge Centre for Corporate Sustainability at the University of Calgary and the former chairman of the National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy.
Through a candid on-stage conversation with Dr. Page, Professor Flannery will share successes and lessons from his nation’s experience in transitioning to a lower-carbon economy.
This is the first talk in our Low Carbon Leadership speaker series. It is our hope that this non-partisan program will engage attendees and participants in a thoughtful and candid discussion about various approaches to achieving a prosperous low-carbon Canadian economy.
Please note: Doors open at 4:30pm with a cash bar. Program begins promptly at 5:00pm.
