CANSEE 2019 isn’t your typical conference. We’re calling scholars, activists, educators,

civil servants, business leaders and change-makers alike to Engage Economies of Change.

And we’re working hard to make the experience valuable for everyone. 

Here’s 8 examples of #SomethingDifferent that you can see:

Community Showcase
In the central hall, community organizations bringing ecological sustainability and
social justice to Waterloo Region and the world will showcase their work. Care to join us?

We care about impacting the local community, making connections, generating
ideas, innovating, inclusion, and finding new ways to keep us all engaged!

Collaboration with Local Businesses
Local economies keep us fed, employed, connected, and safe. We are partnering with
local businesses to make this conference a success for Waterloo Region.

Serving Local Sustainable Food
You cannot save the world on an empty stomach – and this food will help with both.
Lunch will be provided to all participants each day to maximize networking.

Community Maker Night
We have the power to make what we need! A family friendly event, come explore
how to take back the means of production in hands-on workshops.

Live-steaming of All Keynote Presentations
Extending the conference’s reach beyond Waterloo, keynotes will be broadcast
for free. Records will become teaching tools. Ready to start a conversation?

Public Lecture Series
Open to everyone for free, world-class speakers will discuss a new economic vision for
Canada one night, and the Sustainable Development Goals the next.

Child Care Provided
There’s nothing like trying to think while keeping your child safe and happy.
So everyone can participate, licensed professionals and volunteers will take care of the kids!
