Moving toward Building Back, Better.
Even in lockdown, Pembina Institute staff are making the case for a climate-friendly recovery and green job creation
The onset of COVID-19 in early March scuppered the Pembina Institute’s planned in-person community engagements as lockdowns were put in place across the country, making any form of face-to-face contact impossible.
This could have been a time our conversations around climate policy and clean energy fell by the wayside, but we’ve continued to convene these important discussions virtually, and were able to expand them beyond city-specific engagements to Canada-wide conversations to build back, better.
Throughout the pandemic we’ve addressed the need for a climate-friendly recovery to stave off the bigger global crisis of climate change and the importance of economic stimulus for green job creation as Canada seeks to rebuild a better economy coming out of this pandemic.
In addition to our own virtual events, we participated in online conferences and panels hosted by others that looked at the opportunities and challenges ahead. For example, our executive director Linda Coady joined the “stage” with Kathleen Taylor, chair of the RBC board of directors, at the Responsible Investment Association’s annual conference to talk about resilience and transition in an era of crisis and uncertainty.
