We have two BIG announcements this week!

2. Green Majority will be hosting a town-hall style event on what happens when we scale up the sharing economy here in Toronto on Thursday September 25th @ 6pm – 11pm @ the Centre for Social Innovation. It features an amazing panel of speakers, but more importantly the speakers will only be presenting for a few min each before opening the floor to a full hour of Q&A followed by drinks + food + networking.
Our panelists include:
Camille Labchuk – Green Party Candidate for Trinity-Spadina in Toronto (more here…)
Tim Nash – The Sustainable Economist (more here…)
Lucy Gao – Toronto Curator for Collaborative Consumption (more here…)
Lawrence Alvarez – Co-Founder of Toronto Tool Library and President @ Institute for a Resource Based Economy (more here…)
Tickets are FREE but please register to make sure you get a seat.
By the time this post was made, less than 6 hours after the announcement, we already have 20% of the capacity filled so don’t delay!
As you might have heard, we are now producing high-quality interviews in full HD video as well as memberships that get you exclusive members content each week!
