Democratization & Decarbonization: Imagining a New Kind of Economy

Join Ted Howard, author of “The Making of a Democratic Economy,” for a talk on the role we can play to help transform our economy.

Ted Howard is the Co-founder and President of the Democracy Collaborative and served as the Minter Senior Fellow for Social Justice with the Cleveland Foundation from 2010 to 2014. Howard is the architect of the green jobs and wealth building program in Cleveland, Ohio known as the Evergreen Cooperatives - an effort to create green jobs in low-income neighborhoods using the purchasing power of the City's anchor institutions. Ted's keynote will be followed by a panel discussion that will look at how the principles of a democratic economy can support efforts in Canada and globally to achieve a just transition to a low carbon economy.
