5th Annual Ontario Climate Symposium

Thursday, May 11, 2017 - 1:00pm to Friday, May 12, 2017 - 7:00pm

York University (Keele Campus), 4700 Keele Street, Toronto

On May 11-12, the Ontario Climate Consortium will be hosting the 5th Annual Ontario Climate Symposium. The theme for this year's symposium is "Just Transformations: The Next 150". In the context of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the event is looking forward to the next 150 years and what we need to be doing now collectively to set us on a path towards a just transformation. In creating this vision, we recognize that from many indigenous perspectives, individuals have a collective responsibility for ensuring the well-being of the Earth and its communities (both human and non-human) when looking into the future.

The symposium will be taking place at York University from May 11-12, 2017. Over the two days, there will be discussions around climate action in the context of both adaptation and mitigation. You will have the opportunity to hear from over 50 researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners about leading edge thought and practice. Sessions at the symposium will cover topics related to:

  • Sustainable Energy;

  • Climate Justice;

  • Regional Planning and Implementation;

  • Ecohealth; and,

  • The Future of the Water System.

Please see the program for the great line-up of speakers. The OCC team has also confirmed a performance on the evening of May 11th of the award winning play Sea Sick by internationally-acclaimed Globe and Mail journalist Alanna Mitchell.
