Unexpected Climate Connections

Advancing good policy for the economy and the environment

In our complex world, we often hear that “everything connects to everything else.” The purpose of this one-day conference is to examine some of the unexpected or underappreciated linkages between advancing climate policy and achieving other important policy objectives.

Climate policy may not connect to everything else, but it certainly connects with many things, and those connections make policy design and implementation even more complicated than normal.

Join us, in Toronto or online, for a riveting day of discussion and debate about advancing good policy for the economy and the environment.
