Ms. Joyce Murray (Vancouver Quadra, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, inspired, empowered, and connected is what happens when leaders come together to share winning strategies to ignite innovation and accelerate the shift to a low carbon economy.
I am referring to the GLOBE 2016 Conference & Innovation Expo in Vancouver last week. I had the pleasure of attending its launch, where our Prime Minister confirmed our government’s commitment to real action on climate change based on collaboration.
At 25-years-old, GLOBE is North America’s largest and longest running clean tech conference series and an important catalyst for generating solutions. I am happy to report the events last week built on that tradition. The best and brightest of the international sustainable business community shared ideas with thought leaders, policy makers, and practitioners. The conference events and side events were dynamic, and visitors swarmed the expo’s array of novel clean tech solutions.
Our beautiful city of Vancouver is a natural home for GLOBE, which in turn has helped make our city a leading hub for the clean tech sector.
Now that’s inspiring!
