On May 11th and 12th, 2017 York University will host the 5th Ontario Climate Symposium. This year’s symposium holds special significance, given that it coincides with Canada’s 150th anniversary and follows ratification of the Paris Agreement on climate change. The symposium provides a forum for discussions of the future we want in the next 150 years, and more importantly, of the actions needed to realize this vision. We hope to encourage the development of positive narratives of a sustainable and just future, ones that cross boundaries between Indigenous knowledge, natural and social science, law, humanities and the arts.
