2014-15 Fall Featured Lecture Series - Five Trends Changing Our World: Are we ready for them?

The world is in the midst of profound change, driven by the intersecting trends of globalization, information technology, energy, demographics, and education. What do these mean for continued success and prosperity in mid-sized western countries like Canada? What are the implications for governing in a hyperconnected global economy? These are not issues easily solved, but from a governing perspective, they must be publicly discussed and debated if we are to manage these forces of change well.

Date: Tuesday, October 7, 2014
Time: 1:30 - 3:30 p.m.
Regina Location: Blue Lounge, Hotel Saskatchewan, 2125 Victoria Ave, Regina, SK
Saskatoon Location: Canada Room, Diefenbaker Building, 101 Diefenbaker Place
