"A New Conversation About Environmental and Economic Success"
On February 27-28, 2009 SP brought together 50 influential Canadians to discuss what it would take to build a successful campaign for a green economy.
The meeting was a conversation - as opposed to merely a series of panels - between environmental groups and representatives from Canada's major industries, universities, governments and foundations.
The agenda covered four main topics:
- The Autopsy: what we've learned from the communications around the federal and B.C. carbon tax debates
- The Lessons: how other major policy shifts have happened before in Canada
- The Context: how Canada's current economic and political landscape might create room for new thinking
- The Message: how different segments of the Canadian population view links between the environment and economy.
