Imagining a Future Canada: An Interdisciplinary Conference | March 2-4th, 2017
In an increasingly interconnected world, there is a growing recognition of our interdependence. The Visions for Canada, 2042 conference explored ways innovative collaboration among researchers and the community may be the most effective response to Canada’s future challenges.
Civil servants, non-governmental organizers, university faculty, graduate students and alumni from across the ‘civic’ disciplines participated in a three night, two day conference to discuss research and ideas that help imagine Canada’s future in 2042.
Following the model of the Faculty of Public Affairs’s most innovative and renowned academic units – such as the Institute of Political Economy, the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, and the Kroeger College of Public Affairs — this conference was founded on a commitment to the value of interdisciplinary research on Canada’s future. This conference provided an opportunity to take advantage of the expertise of the Faculty of Public Affairs in Canada’s Capital to connect with those in Ottawa engaged in policy-making and governance.
