URBIS Dialogue 2: How to create and support city and regional policy for effective nature-based solutions to urban sustainability

  • What are the current challenges to make cities more ecologically sound and socially inclusive?
  • What kind of policies at the different levels and sectors can help to tackle those challenges? Where have they been successful and why?

GTEX Forum: Getting More with Less from the Grid: Innovations in Energy Demand Management

Recent statistics show that an average Canadian resident uses over 300 gigajoules of energy each year, equivalent to more than 50 barrels of crude oil. That’s twice the amount as in Japan and many European countries with comparable standards of living. The extra energy being consumed may not equate to societal or health benefits, and contributes to overall energy and economic insecurity.

Webinar: Clarifying and Simplifying CED to Localize Prosperity

Do you want a socially inclusive, redistributive, prosperous economy?

The Canadian CED Network has been following with interest developments that have been going on across the Atlantic. Perhaps most exciting for us has been the work of Localise West Midlands. Although focused primarily on the West Midlands region of the UK, their work also seeks "to catalyse ideas across the UK and to make links with and support organisations all over the world working on a similar agenda."
