A Climate of Change - Episode 5: Tom Rand

Join us for our new weekly speaker series about what comes next as it relates to our country, the economic system and the climate crisis once the coronavirus has come and gone. Each week, Canadian thought leaders will answer three questions:

  1. What are your top three 'teachable moments' from this time?
  2. Big picture: What can we expect of a post-COVID-19 world?
  3. What does Alberta look like on the other side of this and what would be optimal?

There will be time for Q&A. 

We go live at 7:05 so you can continue showing your support for medical and front-line workers.

Our fifth speaker will be Dr. Tom Rand. His focus is on carbon mitigation as an entrepreneur, venture capitalist, author and speaker. He is Managing Partner of ArcTern Ventures and sits on the board of a number of clean energy companies and organizations. He also developed Planet Traveler, a low-carbon hotel project in downtown Toronto.

Tom’s first book Kick the Fossil Fuel Habit (2010) was winner of the 2011 Whitepine Non-Fiction award; his second – Waking the Frog – became a bestseller in Spring 2014; his third – Climate Capitalism: Economic Solutions for a Planet in Crisis is out now. Find it at your local bookseller.

Tom holds a BSc in electrical engineering (U of Waterloo), an MSc in philosophy of science (University of London and LSE) and an MA and PhD in philosophy (U of Toronto), is an Action Canada Fellow, and has been a member of a number of federal and provincial advisory boards. Tom is a regular contributor on Canada’s leading op-ed pages and television.
