Mansbridge Summit on freshwater

Off today to Sackville, New Brunswick (on the Bay of Fundy!) to participate in this year’s Mansbridge Summit. Chaired by CBC anchor Peter Mansbridge, who is also the chancellor of Mt. Allison University, the summit helps students develop skills for tackling complex policy issues. At the end of the exercise they produce panel briefings.

This year’s topic is freshwater, ethics and Canada’s response to water crises. The scenario the students will respond to is fictional, though I’m sure that line will be blurred as the great students at Mt. Allison students do their research. Tony Maas, Bonita Croft and I will work with the students during the day before sitting on a panel discussion tomorrow night.
