Environmental Sector Roundtable
Organized in cooperation with the Canadian Environmental Network (RCEN).
This session aims to foster strategic alliances within the environment sector, including Canadian and international NGOs, health professionals, labour unions, indigenous and youth groups, universities, the private sector and government. Drawing from participants’ experiences and particular areas of expertise, the three-hour roundtable will serve as a forum to identify, through an environment and health lens, the challenges and opportunities to achieving sustainable cities. Examples of eco-innovation in the form of successful strategic alliances will be presented and analyzed. Lastly, pilot projects will be identified, partnerships encouraged and preliminary action plans developed.
