Rethinking Prosperity: Does our “Success Narrative” put us on a collision course with an uncertain future?

Organizer: Toronto Sustainability Speaker Series (TSSS)

Date: 11.12.14, 04:30PM – 11.12.14, 07:30PM ET


Sponsor:Toronto Sustainability Speaker Series (TSSS)


Sustainability is about meeting the needs of today without compromising the needs of future generations. An economic system that shrinks the middle class and leaves more and more people behind is just as real a threat to our collective future as are climate change, resource scarcity and bio-diversity loss. On Nov. 12th we’re going to take a closer look at the system that has done so much good in the past BUT that now is leading us on a collision course with a very uncertain future. How can we “Rethink Prosperity” so that our future is prosperous for all of us.

Panellists Include:

Chrystia Freeland, author of “Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else” and the Federal Member of Parliament (MP) for Toronto Centre
Doug Miller, Chairman of GlobeScan
Blair Feltmate, Associate Professor, Program Director Sustainability Practice at University of Waterloo; Chair Climate Change Adaptation Project Canada
