True Leaders Challenge What's Possible

True leaders don’t just accept challenges. They challenge the status quo. Each year, the Carleton Challenge Conference brings together Canadian changemakers and thought leaders from a wide range of sectors for a single day of forward-thinking discussions on a pressing global issue.

The conference offers business, government, community and academic leadership a space to share inspiring insights and brainstorm novel solutions, all while building their networks and growing their capacity to create real change.

The next Challenge Conference will focus on one of the great challenges of our time: climate change. Experts agree that climate change will continue to intensify and increasingly impact our economy, communities, well-being and the environment. We must bring leaders together to engage in an important conversation on climate solutions that will lead to a more sustainable future.
