About the event:
Margaret Biggs, and John McArthur co-led the Centre for International Policy Studies’ working group report, “Towards 2030: Building Canada’s Engagement with Global Sustainable Development”. The conclusions found are clear. The world is in the midst of a complex and dramatic set of transformations. The traditional view of “international development” as solely a matter of charity and moral importance, secondary to Canada’s hard interests, is long outdated. The complex, inter-related nature of contemporary global challenges demands a new mindset, a new coalition of actors, and even new terminology.
Refreshments will be served.
