As countries scramble to put economic and social recovery plans in place, there is an opportunity for decarbonization and climate action to play a significant role. Are they? Our panelists will discuss how countries, and especially Canada, can avoid the mistakes of the last ‘green’ recovery following the 2008-2009 economic crisis and what needs to happen for recovery plans to help societies build back better.


Kyla Tienhaara, Professor at Queens University; Matthew Mendelsohn, Visiting Professor at Ryerson University, former Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet at the Government of Canada, and creator of First Policy Response: Canada’s Policy Community Response to Covid-19; and Priyanka Lloyd, Executive Director at Green Economy Canada.

The webinar will be moderated by one of the Co-Directors at the Environmental Governance Lab.
