Reimagine Conference Update
Patrick Moore was requested, through the National Speakers Bureau, to present his keynote speech called “A Sustainable Energy Future” at the Reimagine Conference 2020: Roadmap to Sustainable Cities. This speech, as reflected in our conference agenda, is relevant to the conference purpose.
We have received many comments via email and social media, and it is clear that Dr. Moore’s keynote speech has become a detraction to the overall objective of the Reimagine Conference, which is to foster meaningful discussion around how to make the City’s facilities and operations 100 per cent renewable by 2050.
The conference Co-Chairs, Councillor O’Donnell and Councillor Murray, have made the decision to remove keynote speaker Patrick Moore from the agenda of the Reimagine Conference 2020: Roadmap to Sustainable Cities.
The purpose of the Reimagine Conference is not to spark debate about climate change. We hope that the adjustment to the agenda will refocus discussions back to the true intent of this gathering.
