Science Café – April 24th

APRIL 24, 2017 – Regreening: How will our past inform our future?

In response to mining’s significant environmental impact, Sudbury’s industry and community have proudly and famously joined forces to regreen our region. In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, we look back at the past 150 years of Sudbury’s science story and explore the future of our environmental remediation efforts. Was the regreening of Sudbury a precondition for the region to become a viable science hub, cultural centre and tourist destination? How have science and technology continued to contribute to the transformation of Sudbury? What does Sudbury have to teach the world? How will our science be tied to our future? How are future generations being inspired to learn and continue to lead the charge in environmental stewardship?
