Inspiring dialogue at Environment Industry Day 2014
On November 18, 2014, ONEIA held its 14th edition of Environment Industry Day, our annual day of dialogue with MPPs at the Ontario legislature.
The day began with a breakfast address by Minister of Environment and Climate Change The Hon. Glen Murray. The Minister inspired the audience by drawing parallels between the historical challenges of the Manhattan Project and the moon landing and the current challenge posed by climate change. He called for improved dialogue around solutions between his ministry and groups such as ONEIA.
The minister was followed by a "deep background" panel that drew back the curtain on how Queens Park actually works. Panelists (list panel names) explored the dynamics in the new legislature and offered practical advice to the small teams of ONEIA members that met throughout the remainder of the day with MPPs.
The Association and the environment and Cleantech sector was recognized in the Legislature as a "bright light" in the Ontario economy, as all three parties offered supportive introductions to Environment Industry Day. The day then concluded with an informal reception for meeting teams and members at Hart House's Gallery Grill.
