Alberta to co-host World Economic Forum meeting
The Redford government will co-host a World Economic Forum regional meeting on energy, climate change and innovation in Lake Louise on April 24 and 25.
The event will bring together global leaders in industry, business, academia, non-governmental organizations and government.
“I’m excited Alberta has been chosen to co-host an event that will engage the international community on issues that matter so much for our future. Our province has so much to showcase — I’m looking forward to showing the world just how forward-thinking and innovative we truly are.”
This is the first time Alberta will co-host a World Economic Forum event. The government and the World Economic Forum will work together to develop a program for more than 100 participants from the national and international community. Public and private sector participants will identify collaborative goals, actions, and innovation on energy and environmental sustainability. The meeting will also highlight the important work Alberta is undertaking in energy and environmental policy, innovation and technology.
Outcomes from this meeting will help inform discussions at the United Nations Secretary General’s Leaders’ Summit scheduled for September in New York.
The World Economic Forum is an independent international organization that brings together influential business, political and academic leaders from around the world to engage in discussions that shape global, regional and industry agendas.
Under the Building Alberta Plan, our government is investing in families and communities, living within our means, and opening new markets for Alberta's resources to ensure we're able to fund the services Albertans told us matter most to them. We will continue to deliver the responsible change Albertans voted for.
