Description

The Riverwood Conservancy and the Master of Science in Sustainability Management Program (MScSM) are proud to welcome Bruce Lourie, one of Canada’s most influential environment leaders to the University of Toronto Mississauga campus for his talk on failed sustainability.

Please join us for this FREE event!

The modern era of "sustainable development" was ushered in 30 years ago this year. The idea was based on the need to balance ecological, social and economic outcomes. How have we done? Where are we at in 2017, what can we learn from the past 30 years? Moreover, how can we apply our learning to the next phase of sustainability 30 years ahead with the climate targets looming in 2050? Join Bruce in a provocative conversation on whether or not we have failed in our sustainability goals.

Bruce Lourie is a leading environmental thinker, writer and speaker. He is President of the Ivey Foundation and is a director of several organizations in Canada and the United States. He is the co-author of "Toxin Toxout."



Hosted by The Riverwood Conservancy and the Master of Science in Sustainability Management Program, and part of celebrations for Canada150 and UTM's 50th Anniversary. Please join us on November 20th!
