Innovation: Confronting Challenges in the 21st Century

The conference is a full-day event where students will be able to explore Innovation in the 21st century through a variety of lenses. No matter what department you are in, as Social Science students we all need to develop new ideas to help grow our own knowledge and disciplines!

Over the course of the day, we have a morning keynote followed by student paper awards and a series of breakout rooms. Each breakout room will feature topics from different departments or faculties and will explore a different aspect of Innovation in the 21st Century and its effects on various disciplines.

Following the day’s events, we will have an evening session with keynote speaker Peter Mansbridge – the chief corespondent for CBC news for almost 30 years. Mansbridge has been at the front lines reporting on Canada and the world for decades; we are excited to share a night with him to discuss Canada, where its been, and where its headed!
