This Sunday at Soul Table, our guest speaker is Bruce Lourie, who will be talking about sustainability – what works, and what doesn’t? This is something our civilization needs to figure out – but what’s the best approach, and why aren’t we getting there now? Bruce is the President of the Ivey Foundation, a major funder of strategies to solve climate change.

Author of international bestseller Slow Death by Rubber Duck, Dr. Bruce Lourie is one of Canada’s most influential leaders and thinkers in the environment sector. He has been instrumental in the creation of more than a dozen organizations that play critical roles in sustainability in Canada and abroad, and initiated the largest climate action in North America — phasing out coal in Ontario. Speaking on topics such as climate change, energy, sustainable finance, toxic pollution, non-profit leadership, and more, Lourie brings a unique ability to translate complex issues into timely and actionable information.
