Shifting Gears: Transitioning to the Future Economy
November 18-20, 2016
Parkland Institute's 20th annual conference explored the many transitions in the public services, economy, environment and the nature of work in Alberta, Canada, and the world.
The way we perceive and understand government, the economy, and society has changed dramatically over the last two decades, and with that change comes the need for us to challenge ourselves to consider public policy alternatives.
New governments in Alberta and Ottawa provide an opportunity for progressives to propose and promote alternatives in ways we have not been able to for some time. The conference will provide a space to discuss and formulate what those alternatives might look like in future.
