TISED

Theme and Scope

Symposium theme and scope

Our future prosperity is related to sustainable production of manufactured goods and consumption of resources.  The depletion of natural resources, rising greenhouse gas emissions with consumption of energy and materials require careful considerations for future uses of energy and materials. The demand for materials used to create buildings, infrastructure, equipment and products is expected to double in the next 40 years.

Québec energy consultation

In fall 2013, the Commission sur les enjeux énergétiques du Québec launched a public consultation process looking at energy issues. Citizens and organizations throughout Québec are expressing their opinions, sharing their expertise and making suggestions about ways to deal with the main energy issues facing Québec.  What energy-related challenges will Quebecers face in the future?

Total E&P Distinguished Visitor Speaker Series

Made possible through a generous donation by Total E&P Canada, one of our most high-profile activities is a distinguished visiting speaker series that is open to academics, students, the public, government representatives and McGill’s industry partners. These prestigious and well-publicized events are tailored to attract experts in our thematic areas. The insights these speakers share and the discussions they generate will help to advance new sustainability initiatives and position McGill as a leader in this field.
