The event will be massive and you can learn more about the Toronto team here: http://toronto350.org/ and the event overall here: http://peoplesclimate.org/

Opt-Out: Sharing As A Political Act (a kick-ass town hall)
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…)
