Transitions toward more sustainable development pathways in cities emerge out of a complex constellation of actors, policy initiatives, socio-economic 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.
Professor Burch is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Environment and Canada Research Chair in Sustainability Governance and Innovation.
