A Climate of Change - Episode 2: Dr. Sarah Hastings Simon

April 30, 2020 - 7:05pm

From the Calgary Climate Hub website:

Join us for our new weekly speaker series about what comes next as it relates to our country, the economic system and the climate crisis once the coronovirus has come and gone. Each week, Canadian thought leaders will answer three questions:

  1. What are your top three 'teachable moments' from this time?
  2. Big picture: What can we expect of a post-COVID-19 world?
  3. What does Alberta look like on the other side of this and what would be optimal?

There will be time for Q&A. 

We go live at 7:05 so you can continue showing your support for medical and front-line workers.

Schedule change: Our second speaker will be Sarah Hastings Simon. A Research Fellow at the University of Calgary School of Public Policy, Sara's work focuses on Low Carbon Energy Transitions at the intersection of technology, business and policy. She has experience across the clean economy in renewables, energy efficiency and cleantech. Her work has included research and presentations on the state of the cleantech industry and success factors, development of a detailed model of the North American power sector, international and domestic policy for climate change and emissions reduction, and consulting work on key business issues with both incumbents and attackers across the cleantech sector such as utilities, solar developers, VC firms, and governments.

We’ll be broadcasting to you via Facebook Live where you can participate in the night’s conversation by asking the questions you think need answering via the live-feed. Or, you can sign up for a Zoom link.
