The Transition Accelerator to offer new Net-Zero Course for Government, Industry, and Civil Society Leaders

With more than 60 other countries, Canada has committed to reach net zero by 2050. However, there remains a limited understanding of the nature of the net zero challenge and how to formulate a strategic response. For instance, what is the scope and magnitude of change entailed by net zero? How can this change be systematized and accelerated? 

Which actions and approaches give us the best chance of achieving a desirable net zero future? These are just some of the questions that will be addressed in The Transition Accelerator’s condensed course titled Net Zero Changes Everything: A strategic approach.

Course overview

The goal of the course is to equip leaders in government, industry and civil society with the knowledge needed to move their organizations, and Canada as a whole, towards net zero.

Senior Transition Accelerator staff will impart critical insights on:

  • Net zero – the nature of the challenge
  • Systems change – accelerating transitions
  • Pathways – a strategic approach

These insights will be developed through a combination of lectures and visual materials, real-world examples and vignettes, interactive exercises and guided discussions, as well as supplemental readings and resources.

Report: Autonomous Vehicles, Parking & the Real Estate Sector

For the past 100 years, the automobile, especially personally owned vehicles, have greatly impacted the design of our cities and how we live in them. However, Canada’s personal mobility systems are poised to be radically transformed by the convergence of four disruptive technology and business model innovations: vehicle automation, connectivity, electrification and car sharing. Together, these innovations enable Autonomous Mobility-on-Demand (AMoD), whereby fleets of autonomous, connected and driverless vehicles will pick up and drop off passengers, effectively replacing the need for personal vehicle ownership, while providing a more convenient, safer and lower cost service.
