Description

Sustainability is one of the most important challenges and biggest economic opportunities of our age, and Canada’s colleges and institutes have a long history of showing us how growing the economy and protecting the environment can – and do – go hand in hand.

But how can we do even more to support Canada’s climate action commitments and a net-zero economy?

Be among the first to hear our exciting news! Join us for the LIVE launch of two new initiatives that will build on the demonstrated expertise and accelerate the contributions of colleges and institutes in the sustainability space. Together, we are leading the way to a net-zero carbon future!

Tuesday, June 15 from 12:00-12:30 pm EST

Context:

Launched on Earth Day, our brand-new paper on sustainability highlights the critical role of colleges and institutes in helping Canada achieve net-zero emissions by 2050!

“Leading the Way to a Net-Zero Carbon Future”presents the role of colleges and institutes on four pillars: green skills for a net-zero future, applied research and living labs, Indigenous and nature-based solutions, and leveraging campuses.

Funding by the McConnell Foundation, our ImpAct initiative uses the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a framework for partnership to support colleges and institutes in collaborating for a healthy, inclusive, prosperous and sustainable 21st century Canada.

Canadian Colleges for a Resilient Recovery is a coalition of leading colleges, cégeps, institutes, and polytechnics from across Canada working together to lead the transition to a clean economy.
