About this event

In what ways can governments, businesses, educational institutions, and our legal system be transformed to facilitate climate action?

UCalgary students are invited to join us on Thursday, February 13 to participate in a discussion with innovators working to enable systems-level change, leading exploratory conversations with students about what it means to work on climate action, and what it takes to make a positive impact.

As a participant you will have the opportunity to learn from some of Calgary's leading researchers, inventors, business leaders, and change-makers. A comprehensive list will be available soon.

Together, we will discover new ways of understanding the challenges we face and how we might overcome them. This event will provide:

  • A deeper understanding of the challenges we face and the opportunities for solutions,
  • Connections to mentors and others students who are working to make an impact,
  • Insights into how to develop a career working on climate change,
  • Clear next steps should you wish to learn more.

About FutureU

FutureU is a Innovation@UCalgary initiative that invites students to discover the world of innovation through hands-on learning and community-based activities. Students are provided with opportunities to explore emerging trends and ideas, meet engaging leaders from on and off campus, develop future skills for the knowledge economy, and think about their place in the world beyond the classroom. Our goal is to help students to build a sustainable life working on challenges they care about.
