Title: Wrap Up: Where do we go from here?


1
Wrap Up Where do we go from here?
  • Dr. Irene Henriques
  • JPAC Member for Canada
  • Associate Professor, Schulich School of Business,
    York University

Challenge
  • I would like everyone in this room to now change
    your perspective. I want us to move away from a
    position of dismay and paralysis to one of hope
    and change.
  • How can each of you, in your respective
    organizations whether citizen of a country,
    government leader, member of an NGO, business
    leader, scientist, medical health professional,
    community leader, employee, entrepreneur,
    educator initiate change?

Panel I Continued Growth and Integration of
North American Societies
  • What are the prospects for integrating
    environmental considerations in the development
    of an integrated North American transportation
    sector?
  • Is North America prepared to receive the influx
    of people who will be displaced by environmental
    disasters/stresses around the world?
  • Are businesses, government and citizens prepared
    to take action on things that they have influence
    on today instead of pointing fingers in other
    words, are we prepared to show leadership?

Panel II Global Environmental Change The
Challenges for NA
  • It has been said that there are only three
    options when considering how we respond to the
    impacts of climate change mitigation,
    adaptation, and suffering.
  • Given the complexity of the challenge, what is
    the importance of international cooperation, and
    what is the importance for local,
    country-specific action?
  • Does the existence of complexity and uncertainty
    mean we do nothing?
  • How can we prepare our health system to meet not
    only an aging population but also building
    flexibility in our medical system to address
    climate change risks?
  • Are we not all stakeholders in this problem and
    should we not all take responsibility?

5
Panel III Environmental Security
  • Security is no longer a purely homeland defense
    or public safety concept.
  • Energy security may prompt us to explore
    previously ignored or protected sources of oil.
    Is this the socially optimal solution?
  • Food security may become a more prominent issue
    as the agricultural output is reduced by climate
    change and the conversion of crops into fuel.
    Are we willing to accept the consequences this
    may have on food supply?
  • The possibility of abrupt and cataclysmic weather
    events can have serious economic and social
    consequences.
  • Thus, we see that security concerns can have
    environmental implications (e.g. from increased
    oil production and consumption), which can in
    turn have consequences for security

Leadership
  • Management is doing things right leadership is
    doing the right things. Peter F. Drucker
  • Don't tell people how to do things, tell them
    what to do and let them surprise you with their
    results. George S. Patton
  • A leader is a dealer in hope. Napoleon Bonaparte
  • Let us be leaders to future generations.
