Hear ye! There's a public forum happening on sustainable development 28 October.
Yes, yes, we know... "yet another consultation" and all that. But here's what's interesting: This effort is being spearheaded by an entity called the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Sustainable Development (or the IMCSD), that's pulled together from different government agencies. Policy analysts sometimes call this a "whole-of-government" approach, and it's quite a rare opportunity that this much coordination effort has been put in for something like sustainable development.
And we know this is for real - we were one of the (approx) 8 representatives from academia, private and non-government sectors involved in one of the consultations. So thumbs up for the effort taken to engage other folks!
28 October 2008 6:45 - 9pm | URA Auditorium, 5th Floor 45 Maxwell Rd
