Low Carbon Leadership Speaker Series

Public Lecture Series with Tim Flannery - October 2013

Though half a world apart, Australia and Alberta have much in common. Both are resource economies facing the challenge of a fast-changing global energy landscape. Both also face choices and opportunities in the transition to a lower-carbon economy.

Clean Energy Canada at Tides Canada and Alberta Climate Dialogue at the University of Alberta were pleased to present Professor Tim Flannery in conversation with Dr. Robert Page, director of the Enbridge Centre for Corporate Sustainability at the University of Calgary and the former chairman of the National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy.

Tim Flannery is the Chief of the Australian Climate Council, a new non-governmental organization providing information about the science of climate change. His books include The Future Eaters and the New York Times bestseller The Weather Makers—widely regarded as one of the pivotal public works on climate change.

In a candid conversation with Bob Page (Director of the Enbridge Centre for Corporate Sustainability at the University of Calgary and former chairman of the National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy), Flannery shared successes and lessons from his nation’s experience in transitioning to a lower-carbon economy.
