Ontario Climate Consortium and Ryerson University, 2019 Ontario Climate Symposium: Scaling Local Climate Solutions  

The Ontario Climate Consortium (OCC) and Ryerson University will co-host the 7th Ontario Climate Symposium: Scaling Local Climate Solutions, May 1-2, 2019 at Ryerson University.

The symposium aims to bring together municipal, provincial and federal leaders with researchers, practitioners and students to explore how collective, local action can achieve global impacts, by:

 

.  examining the many ways of creating economic, environmental and social prosperity without exceeding planetary boundaries;

.  highlighting how leadership at the local level can help contribute to large, transformational shifts that align with global, sustainable, development goals;

.  encouraging the development of disruptive, innovative, collective visions and strategies that foster collaboration, environmental and social justice;

.  generating awareness of the need for a transformative cultural shift toward low carbon communities.

 

Within the above overarching theme, the program is organized around a set of sub-themes:

.  Employment, Equity and Sustainability in the Green Economy
.  Policy Options for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation
.  Communication Strategies to Mobilize Action
