Panel Organized by: Dr. Tina McDivitt, Spindle Strategy Corp.

Thomas Friedman in his book “Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Acceleration”, notes that the planet’s three largest forces―Moore’s law (technology), the Market (globalization), and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss)―are all accelerating at once. These accelerations are transforming our entire world across the dimensions of work, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. The critical question that we will address is whether Canada’s policies and models as related to technology development, regulation and public education will help us to successfully navigate this new 21st century landscape.
