Information

The global economy is in the midst of a transformation towards a new, low-pollution model built around clean innovation. Canadian entrepreneurs in different sectors across the country, both big and small, are beginning to succeed in growing businesses that build a cleaner economy. They're demonstrating that such a shift is possible, but only if we provide the right conditions for success. Come together with entrepreneurs, students and established leaders to explore Succeeding in the Green Economy: Lessons learned from Canadian clean growth entrepreneurs. The discussion will revolve around potential clean growth economic opportunities, sharing local clean economy success stories, and providing advice for students and entrepreneurs looking to develop their ideas or advance their careers. Stick around afterwards for Student Energy UBC's Enerbeers, where those interested in discussing environmental issues and passionate about shaping the future of energy can connect with those in the energy sector.
