Future Focus 2050 – Getting Ready for What’s Next…


As Manitoba celebrates 150 years strong this year, we invite you to join leaders in government, business, academia and civil society to explore the challenges and opportunities related to climate, technology, effective partnerships, infrastructure investment and economic growth in order to build strong communities and secure our future for the next 150.

Leaders are being called to respond at an accelerated pace to pressing challenges that were once thought far on the horizon. It has become clear that biding our time and taking a “wait and see” approach is leaving us ill prepared for what lies ahead.

We need a big, dynamic, actionable vision so that our people, investors and developing markets in Manitoba thrive.

On Thursday March 26, 2020 at Canad Inns Destination Centre Polo Park, join local leaders of the Winnipeg METRO Region for an important day of discussion with experts from across Canada as we:

• Plan for a future that is destined to compete globally.

If we are to compete, we have to build a 21st century economy that manages our climate, health and our infrastructure as the pillars of our culture.

• Find new pathways to bridge the gaps.

Can we map a path for the next 30 years? What areas will we see growth in? How can we ensure we are making the investments today to reap the benefits in the future? How can we ensure we are providing quality of life benefits for all residents?

• Develop a clear-eyed view of our challenges and opportunities:

Reality Testing – Where do stand today? What are our opportunities and where should we place our bets?

To set the stage, John Coyne, a man well known for his leadership in corporate sustainability with Unilever, will share the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan – their strategy to grow the business, reduce its environmental footprint and increase its positive contribution to society.

Registration is now open and seating is limited. Please REGISTER HERE to join us as we all get ready for what is next…
