Growth for all in a fast-changing world

Growth for all in a fast-changing world: 

In conversation with Mark Carney, Mayor Ken Sim, and Christine Bergeron

As British Columbians and all Canadians look ahead to 2023, we find a global economy being confronted by a series of shocks — the existential threat of climate change, Russia’s war in Ukraine, a cost of living crisis, and fundamental shifts in trade and globalization. 

There’s no hiding from these profound changes. Canadians are already seeing the impacts everywhere from our housing costs and grocery bills to the sense of anxiety that our kids feel about their future. So how do we own up to these big challenges? In BC and across Canada, what can our cities, governments, and economic leaders do to build a stronger economy and more prosperous future for us all? 

Co-hosted with the Urban Land Institute of BC, join Canada 2020 for a featured lunch conversation on securing growth for all in a fast-changing world – in conversation with Mark Carney (former Governor of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England, UN Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance, and Canada 2020 Advisory Board Chair), Ken Sim (Mayor of Vancouver), and Christine Bergeron (President and CEO of Vancity).

A Conversation with Mark Carney

Join Canada 2020 for a special event with Mark Carney, for a conversation on his new book VALUE(s): Building a Better World for All, a bold and urgent examination of the radical, foundational change required if we are to build an economy and society based not on market values, but on human values.

Mark Carney will be joined by Anna Gainey, Canada 2020’s Executive Chair, to discuss his vision of a more humane society and a practical manifesto for getting there.

Our world is full of fault lines–growing inequality in income and opportunity; systemic racism; health and economic crises from a global pandemic; mistrust of experts; the existential threat of climate change; deep threats to employment in a digital economy with robotics on the rise. These fundamental problems and others like them, argues Mark Carney, stem from a common crisis in values. Drawing on the turmoil of the past decade, Mark Carney shows how “market economies” have evolved into “market societies” where price determines the value of everything.

Pre-order Mark Carney‘s book VALUE(s): Building a Better World for All today.

Panel: From Climate Crisis to Solutions

A Canada 2020 conversation on breaking the “tragedy of the horizon” in a fast-changing world.
One year ago, BC’s unprecedented ‘heat dome’ and wildfires were the deadliest weather-related events in the province’s history. Just months later, extreme floods in the Fraser Valley and the Interior became the costliest.
The risks that climate change poses to our health and economies have arrived on the West Coast and around the world. So how do we rise to this existential challenge with the urgent solutions they demand? How do we develop a hopeful vision for Canada’s opportunities and growth amid this historic transition and a rapidly-shifting new global environment?
Join Canada 2020 for a special conversation on what it will take for our communities and our country to build climate resilience, break the tragedy of the horizon, and build a cleaner and better future for all.
