Bridging Divides: In Search of Sound Public Policies for Energy and Environment in Canada

No topics in Canada are hotter today than new pipelines, carbon pricing, and energy development. On June 6th, join us in Calgary for a conversation focused on policy, economics, and concrete evidence. 

About the event

Public policy for the real world

The Max Bell School of Public Policy is committed to the research, teaching, public outreach, and practical advocacy of sound public policy, with each of these four dimensions grounded in a solid understanding of the overall policy process, not simply as it is described in theory but as it is practiced by real-world governments.
