Tech Stewardship for the Energy Transition: Embracing BOTH/AND

May 24 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm MDT

In this interactive webinar, we’ll be joined by Mark Abbott, a leading expert in tech stewardship, who will share his insights on how we can shape a more sustainable and equitable energy future that benefits everyone. By embracing “both/and” opportunities, we can achieve multiple goals simultaneously, such as becoming net-zero, leveraging existing assets, and driving innovation.

Whether you’re an energy professional, an entrepreneur, or a concerned citizen, this webinar is an excellent opportunity to learn from one of the industry’s most respected thought leaders and to dip your toes into the Tech Stewardship for the Energy Transition Program. As an added bonus, attendees will receive a free invitation to pilot a new Tech Stewardship for the Energy Transition program, which is being developed in partnership with the Energy Futures Lab, and launches on June 1st.

So join us and discover how you can become a tech steward for an inclusive, sustainable, and innovative energy future!

Mark Abbott, P.Eng., MBA, is an Ashoka Fellow who currently serves as the Director of the Engineering Change Lab (ECL) and the Director of Tech Stewardship at MaRS Discovery District. Previously, Mark served as a member of the Executive Team at Engineers Without Borders for several years.  And before that, Mark spent fourteen years working for a heavy industrial consulting engineering firm based in Vancouver. Mark currently lives in Kamloops, BC with his partner Colette and their children Felix (8) and Stella (6).
