Speaker Series

Oilsands Visionaries, is an unprecedented, three part speakers' series that invites the world's leading experts on the Alberta Oilsands to share their perspectives on the future of the resource. Presenting before a multi-stakeholder panel, three different speakers will outline the major challenges confronting the Alberta Oilsands and their solutions to overcome them. The panel — made up of industry, government, public policy, and environmental leaders — will provide a critical reflection of the visions outlined from their unique perspectives, assessing the viability and scope of the solutions presented.

The series is designed to engage Alberta Oilsands experts in critical discussion about the future of the resource, in order to inspire and expose Albertans to the actors and ideas that comprise the most crucial public policy debate of our time.

This year's visionaries include: Satya Das, author of Green Oil (Thursday, February 17); Dr. Andrew Leach, Energy, Environment, & Resource Economics Professor with the Alberta School of Business and author of the blog Rescuing the Frog (Thursday, March 3); and Dr. Peter Silverstone, author of World's Greenest Oil (Tuesday, March 15). Joining them in discussion will be the organizations and personalities that are at the centre of the oilsands policy debates in Alberta, including Suncor, Cenovus, Alberta Energy, Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation,  Pembina, Greenpeace, among others.
