The McGill Climate Conference "Building the Canadian Green Economy: A Just Transition" aimed to help construct a lasting consensus for the expansion of climate action, as well as for the creation and maintenance of sustainable employment. This interdisciplinary conference brought together political scientists, policy analysts, philosophers, economists, climate scientists and prominent former politicians to discuss chief strategies to reduce GHG emissions while ensuring Canada’s economic prosperity.
In addition, the two researchers participated as authors in Le Québec économique 8 : Le développement durable à l’ère des changements climatiques (Sustainable Development in the Era of Climate Change), available since October 2 in bookstores.
