This Friday, November 17, please join us for a Research Talks Fall 2017 Series lecture with GEM professor and Canada Research Chair Sarah Burch, on the topic of Transformative Governance on an Urban Planet.
Transitions toward more sustainable development pathways in cities emerge out of a complex constellation of actors, policy initiatives, socioeconomic and political pressures, and technological innovations.
Professor Burch will explore the ingredients of effective sustainability governance in cities, highlight the potential role of rarely discussed but crucial actors (i.e. small businesses), and speculate about the transformative potential of initiatives led by cities across the country.
Please register for the event as seating is limited and registration will close when room capacity is reached.
Light refreshments will be provided but feel free to bring your lunch.
