2019-20 Season

This year's lectures were organized around the theme of 'what's next for Alberta?' With a new provincial government and an upcoming federal election, intensifying pressure to address climate change and diversify Alberta's economy, a moral obligation to take up the TRC's calls to action, and a series of transformations-technological, generational and organizational-the series invited people to grapple with pressing issues and debates. Participants engaged in dynamics that were already impacting us and would shape our futures.

  • The Good, the Bad, the Ugly: Alberta, Quebec and the Federal Election featuring Francine Pelletier
  • Food 5.0: How we feed the future featuring Robert Saik
  • Leadership by Design featuring Alex Benay, Roger Oldham and Dominique Bohn
  • Truth and Reconciliation in Alberta featuring the Makokis Family
  • Will Millennials Save Alberta? Unpacking the Impact of Generational Trends featuring Michelle Dagnino
  • How Canada can lead the Global Energy Transition featuring Chris Turner

Precision Health and the Future of Health Care: An Alberta Perspective featuring Neesh Pannu & Amit Bhavsar, which was scheduled for April 9, 2020, was cancelled in response to COVID-19.
