As digital technologies become ever-more pervasive, so does their power to both help solve and further exacerbate our urgent sustainability challenges. How can large institutions – governments, corporations, higher education – deploy their resources to align their operations with the change, transparency, and equity that citizen-voters are calling for across our warming, storming globe?

Graham Carr, President of Montreal’s Concordia University, and Rémi Quirion, Quebec’s Chief Scientist, CEO of the Fonds de Recherche du Québec (FRQ), and President of the International Network for Government Science Advice will discuss the role large research and teaching institutions can play to accelerate the transition.
