Walter Gordon Symposium: Policymaking for a Well Society

March 3

This year’s Symposium is entitled Policymaking for a Well Society. It will focus in on three major themes at the core of how our societies thrive or struggle – environment, health and housing. By dissecting each of these policy topics in detail this year’s symposium hopes to make us reflect on where we have done well and where we can do better.

Keynote – John Ibbitson of The Globe & Mail

We are pleased to welcome John Ibbitson of the Globe and Mail as the keynote for the 2020 Walter Gordon Symposium. He will be speaking on his recent book, co-authored with Darrell Bricker, “Empty Planet: The Shock of Global Population Decline” followed by a question and answer session.
