In 2020, Calgary experienced the world-altering effects of Covid-19. A year of parallels where Calgary’s community came together to support health and local businesses, while also experiencing first-hand the importance of digital transformation and the need for diversification.
From Covid-19 to community, climate to capital, join more than 1,500 of Calgary’s community builders at the much-anticipated Report to the Community on April 15, 2021. Together we’ll discuss the mark left by 2020 and what forging into the future looks like for our opportunity-rich city.
A year filled with record-setting funding announcements, energy transitions and a global health crisis – this year’s virtual event will feature interactive breakout sessions, moderated by influential community and business leaders, discussing COVID-19's economic impacts and how Calgary can be a global climate, community and capital leader.
THE PANELS FOR THIS YEAR'S EVENT
Happening simultaneously during the virtual event, join one of two panels at this year’s Report to the Community, featuring a discussion on the biggest challenges and opportunities from 2020: Covid-19 and community, climate and capital. Want to attend both sessions? Panels will be recorded to view later.
|PANEL ONE: COVID AND COMMUNITY|
In times of crisis, nothing is more important than community. This panel will feature four thought leaders discussing what the economic and community recovery from COVID-19 can look like, and how a focus on Calgary’s community is what will be our differentiator for the city.
From digital transformation to social justice, join this honest conversation on the community impact of COVID-19 and how Calgary can advance as one of Canada’s most diverse world-class cities.
|PANEL TWO: CLIMATE AND CAPITAL|
|In a city known for our energy output, does the move to a greener economy impact the capital flow to our city? Amid the cancellation of KeystoneXL and events like the Texas ice storms, how can Calgary purposely balance both climate and capital interests in the energy industry and continue to foster ‘unicorn’ tech companies in emerging sectors to diversify our key industry and our economy.|
