An Environmental and a Social Visionary Share their Stories
Thursday, February 4, 2016 - 4:30pm to 7:30pm
Loyalty One, 438 University Ave., 12th Floor, Toronto (use elevators on the left in the lobby)
Join us on Thursday February 4th for an inspiring evening. Follow the journey of two Canadians who took simple ideas and turned them into reality.
Robert Shirkey, founder of Our Horizon, is an eco-visionary who saw gasoline pumps as an opportunity to change the conversation about how each of us contributes to climate change: "What if we added a message right on the gas pump like the way we do with cigarettes"?
Paul Klein, founder of Impakt, is a social visionary who passionately chose to tackle the nagging social problem of youth homelessness and unemployment. In November 2015 Paul and his team launched HireUp - the world's first national job portal for youth who have experienced homelessness.
Also joining us for the event will be Doug Miller, Founder of GlobeScan, to launch his new book "Can the World be Wrong?" The book explores how long-term trends in global public opinion may help us to predict the future.
During the event we will explore some of the following:
- What prompted both Robert and Paul to tackle these issues
- Their strategies for addressing such large challenges
- The biggest surprises they encountered along the way
- Whether they ever felt like it wasn't going to happen and what kept them going
- Keys to the success of their initiatives
