Today, more than ever, we are being called to reimagine a future that is prepared for and able to respond effectively to the impacts and risks of climate change and to do this in the context of the ongoing health and economic crisis that is COVID-19.

If we are to rise to the urgent and intersecting challenges of climate change and COVID, we need leaders who can design and innovate strategies that help build equitable, climate change-ready communities, and a sustainable future. The great question is: How can we keep the momentum on climate action going in the midst of the current economic reset?

Join us for a webinar on January 19th to explore how we can accelerate the actions taken to protect our planet and ensure its livability for generations to come by reimagining and reshaping our economies, our businesses, and our social contracts. Hosted by Dr. Robin Cox, this webinar will share insights into the opportunities for speeding up climate action through government stimulus spending, new business strategies (e.g., green public-private partnerships), and education. Panelists include Dr. Matt Godsoe, Director for Public Safety Canada, RRU alumnus and Doctorate student, and Adam Lerner, Founder & Catalyst at Solvable. This webinar is designed to inspire hope and empower action. It's time to stop following and start leading.

As part of this webinar, we will also share information about our new Master of Arts and Graduate Diploma in Climate Action Leadership programs. 

Date: Tuesday, January 19, 2021
Time: 9 - 10 a.m. (Pacific Time)
