8:30a.m. l Breakfast & Registration


Network with your fellow TSEF attendees over a light & healthy breakfast. 

9:15 a.m Welcome


Let's set the tone - how bad is it, and what areas are affected? Facts and science will be presented by climate scientists.

9:45 a.m. Session Identifying Solutions


Where are the solutions, what is available now and what is coming? What is our best next action?

10:30 a.m. Changing Mindsets Panel


We know change is hard - we'll look at some people and places that have made the switch to more sustainable practices and how they did it. 

11:15 a.m. Marketing Green Panel


Is there pent up demand for sustainable events and venues? How to market sustainability to your audience and clients. This panel will feature retail, winery and hotel marketing experts who work with climate action messaging every day.

A delicious, fresh low carbon lunch! The Chef at the Hilton Meadowvale will create a lovely meal for us to power us through the afternoon.  

Afternoon Agenda

12:30 p.m.Round Table Discussions


A series of roundtable topics to allow us to dig deep into subjects like the UN sustainable development goals, water, food waste and recycling.

2:00 p.m. Measuring & Reporting


We know that we can't manage what we don't measure. Measuring and reporting on resource use can be tricky - join Gary Graham of Green Key Global as he launches their new carbon calculator & ROI tool

2:30 p.m. Networking Break


No naps, unfortunately, but maybe we can have cookies and relax with each other after a couple of action packed hours.

2:45 p.m. Brainstorming


Okay - now we put the ideas we learned today to use and see how we can create goals and plans (we are business people, right?!) and meet this challenge head on!

3:30 p.m. Reception


The best way to keep the brainstorming going? Keep chatting - many climate concerned people tend to be alone in the office, we want to help create connections and foster community so we can be stronger, together. We'll also have the opportunity to tour the Hilton Meadowvale and see the changes they have made over the last three years to become one of the most sustainable hotels in Toronto. 

4:30 p.m. Event Concludes


This is not the end. This is just the beginning - and our success will depend on ever increasing the scale and volume of what we can do. We'll be tracking actions and celebrating successes so we can learn from each other and help our planet thrive!
