canada's changing what every school learns about urgently going green- hows your nation measuring up on road to cop26

 dear professor mckenzie


congratulations on climate monitoring research
please tell me if any of these connections might be useful at any time

iat unctad a year ago i met the head of the bbc studios responsible for david attenborough's connections- he and the british consul in geneva told me to mail them if i came across any deep educational connections- actually long time ago i went to school with davids nephew- since a lot of my published work is on bad and good media attenborough has always been mu gold standard for a journalist

i believe coalition and educational transformation are species critical- here's my questioning of harvards nye on this at one of the last real summits i could get to nye:csis jan2020 dc the greatest debate help search www.masterclass100.com


i see tech particularly artificial intelligence will be make or break- as a statistician i can see that ai can do much more than slide ruler we had in my school days -but designing bottom-up data seems -- canadian research have been playing quite an active role in the geneva un/itu #aiforgood which has over last 4 years become the  largest zoom faculty pf its kind

through 2010s i went to bangladesh 15 times and beijing 8 times to understand the sdg university coalitions being demanded by women across asia- in remembering my father norman macrae the japan embassy in dhaka hosted 2 debriefings on that subject chaired by my family's greatest hero http://www.fazleaded.com whose 50 years of work on poverty alleviation linked in the world's largest ngo coalition

glasgow being my family tree's home town my friends and i am aim to zoom connections welcoming people to cop26 nov 2021 -thats plan a- if covid is still preventing us we will need to open up a different space

although i am monolingual one of my great heroes is fabrice jaumont connector of dual language education at the french consul in ny

A global reset has enabled us to observe how a reduction in carbon emissions has impacted our planet. Data collected during Covid has provided unparalleled intelligence that could previously only be predicted by data analysis and modeling. Join us for this solutions session on the importance of data in a post-Covid world. We’ll discuss how the currency of data enables business and industry to innovate, develop and be more sustainable and how this moment of reflection has provided an opportunity for scientific evidence to inform more sustainable practices. 10:00 AM - The Green (Re)Awakening Thierry Breton, Commissioner for Internal Markets, European Commission 10:30 AM - Deploying Data to Secure a Sustainable Future Jane Ambachtsheer, Global Head of Sustainability, BNP Paribas Asset Management Carlo Buontempo, Director, Copernicus Climate Change Service, ECMWF Niels Strange Peulicke-Andersen, Head of ESG Accounting, Ørsted Rebecca Moore, Director, Geospatial Initiatives, Google Moderator: Eric Roston, Reporter, Bloomberg Green Mon Sep 14, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT (1 Hour) Accelerating the Circular Economy “Take, make, use, dispose,” is the traditional model our global economy has operated by for generations. Due to the buildup of waste and the growing challenges posed by climate change, companies and communities around the world are trying to make the transition to a circular economy model, which aims to minimize the use of resources and the production of waste. But implementing this circular model requires rethinking how we produce products and changing consumer behavior. Join us for a solutions session featuring the world’s leading oceans, plastics and circular economy experts discussing what is needed to transition to a circular economy. What are the greatest challenges and obstacles, what could help facilitate a more rapid transition and what are the opportunities for the future? 12:00 PM - Protecting our Oceans Ted Danson, Award Winning Actor and Environmentalist Moderated by: Antha Williams, Head of Environmental Programs, Bloomberg Philanthropies 12:25 PM - Circular Economy Revolution Ellen Jackowski, Chief Sustainability and Social Impact Officer hp Dune Ives, Executive Director, Lonely Whale Janis Searles Jones, CEO, Ocean Conservancy John Burke, CEO, Trek Moderated by: Jess Shankleman, Reporter, Bloomberg Green Mon Sep 14, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (1 Hour) Investing in Change Climate change poses important new risks and opportunities for business and finance leaders. Many have embraced climate action as an opportunity, providing innovative corporate and finance solutions that are creating a positive impact on both their business and the planet. How products are manufactured, packaged, marketed and distributed, and the degree to which investors put money to work in companies who embraced climate positive practices across the entire life cycle, is one of the most viable ways to move the needle in the right direction. We’ll talk to top names in business, markets, and finance about how and why they’re making the investment in climate action. 2:00 PM - Leading a Purpose Driven Company Enrique Lores, CEO, HP Inc. Emily Chang, Anchor, Bloomberg Television 2:30 PM - Pensions Driving Change Mark Machin, President & CEO, CPP Investments Christopher J.

To maximize the climate benefits of forests, we must keep more forest landscapes intact, manage them more sustainably, and restore more of those landscapes which we have lost. Halting the loss and degradation of natural systems and promoting their restoration have the potential to contribute over one-third of the total climate change mitigation scientists say is required by 2030. In this solutions session, we’ll talk with some of the world’s leading forest conservation experts about efforts underway to protect this vital natural resource; what the biggest threats are in terms of future degradation; and what action businesses leaders, and individuals, can take to help in the fight for forest preservation. 10:00 AM - State of Nature: Our Forests Now Carter Roberts, President and CEO, World Wildlife Fund Moderated by: Adam Majendie, Senior Editor, Bloomberg 10:25 AM - Fighting Illegal Deforestation Topher White, Founder & CEO, Rainforest Connection 10:35 AM - Building a Forest-Positive Future Corey Brinkema, President, Forest Stewardship Council US Sophie Beckham, Chief Sustainability International Paper Moderated by: Leslie Kaufman, Reporter, Bloomberg Green Ue Sep 15, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT (1 Hour) Zero Carbon Careers Greta Thunberg may be the poster child for a global student movement vocal on climate change, but she exemplifies the passion Generation Z shows when it comes to climate and social issues. For Generations X and Y, the hot job ticket shifted from investment banking in the 1990s to wannabe dot com millionaires in the early 2000s, when every conceivable idea went to IPO. Today, the younger generation wants to marry mission and money and doesn’t see them as mutually exclusive. Social and environmental issues are a huge driver for them, and businesses have realised that to attract this new generation of employees they will have to focus on becoming more ethical and sustainable. In this solutions session, we’ll examine what green jobs look like for the new generation of leaders. Will companies that lack green credentials struggle to hire top talent? What is the future of the green job market? And how can you identify the right green job for you? 12:00 PM - Engaging the Future Green Workforce Jigar Shah, President and Co-Founder, Generate Capital Nico Rosberg, Sustainability Entrepreneur and Co-founder, Greentech Festival Moderator: Carol Massar, Co-Anchor Bloomberg Businessweek, Bloomberg Television and Radio 12:25 PM - Identifying Green Jobs Steve Varley, Global Vice-Chair, Sustainability, EY Diego Díaz, Head of New Ventures, Iberdrola Lisa Jacobson, President,Business Council for Sustainable Energy Moderator: Ethan Zindler, Head of Americas, BloombergNEF Tue Sep 15, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (1 Hour) The Business Case for Climate Action 2:00 PM - Green as Good Business Jesper Brodin, CEO, Ingka Group 2:30 PM - Clean Energy Future Ignacio S.

However, this presents an opportunity for cities to play an integral role in combating climate change. With more than half of the world’s population living in cities, urban centers are well-positioned to play a leadership role in driving global action. Join us for this solutions session, where we’ll examine if it’s possible to create a carbon neutral city. What are the opportunities, the challenges, and the potential path to carbon neutrality?

Building a Carbon Neutral City

According to C40, cities consume over two-thirds of the world’s energy and account for more than 70% of global CO2 emissions. However, this presents an opportunity for cities to play an integral role in combating climate change. With more than half of the world’s population living in cities, urban centers are well-positioned to play a leadership role in driving global action.

Join us for this solutions session, where we’ll examine if it’s possible to create a carbon neutral city. What are the opportunities, the challenges, and the potential path to carbon neutrality? We’ll also speak with top Mayors from around the world about the solutions they’re implementing now to become carbon neutral.
