In the move to net zero carbon emissions, the global north can learn a great deal from the efforts of the global south in approaches to mitigating climate change. Please join us as we pair scholars, creatives, and businesspeople to offer south-north perspectives on how business, literature, and the performing and visual arts can enrich our understanding of how we can successfully tackle climate change.

The webinar will commence with insights from the effective climate governance strategies of Nedbank and other South African businesses that have adopted the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Businesses across Canada, South Africa and other countries, particularly family-owned smaller and medium enterprises, face many of the same challenges in assessing and addressing the risks and opportunities of climate change. The webinar will reflect on strategies to instill hope and to envision climate governance that recognizes a sharing of the benefits and burdens of the transition to net zero carbon. The webinar will include the launch of a South African Visual Art Exhibit and sale of the art of winners of a competition held in collaboration with the University of Johannesburg and Artist Proof Studio among South African art students for print designs on climate change and a hopeful vision for a ‘green recovery’ of our economies. The webinar also include release of a new virtual choir song titled Time for Hope, in a collaboration between the Canada Climate Law Initiative and Live Canon, with voices and pledges from around the world.
