QUESTION THE STATUS QUO
Most days, it feels like no amount of petitions can solve the massive problems of our world. But what does it actually take to dismantle the status quo? Canada can do better on massive international challenges like poverty and inequality and contribute moe to oppoturtunities like clean tech and global innovation. Let's make sure made-in-Canada innovations and policies have positive impacts at home and abroad.
Our fellow human beings continue to live in poverty with diminished choices: struggling to access food, water, sanitation, and basic health services. This is simply unacceptable. How are Canada's policies improving global poverty in an equitable way?
We can lower our global emissions and create new jobs by investing in green technology. There are made-in-Canada solutions that the world can benefit from and that benefits Canada. How can we share more of it with other countries?
Our country values and invests in innovation to solve social and environmental problems. Yet these efforts are mostly kept at home when we could galvanize creativity and partnerships across the world. Why isn't Canada driving global innovation in a bigger way?
