EaRTH District: Institutional Collaboration Towards a Net-Zero Economy (E)

Stream: Transforming Leadership and Governance

The Environmental and Related Technologies Hub (EaRTH District) is a Consortium made up of five academic institutions extending from Toronto to Durham Region to Peterborough and the Kawarthas. As EaRTH District, Centennial College, Fleming College, Ontario Tech University, Trent University and University of Toronto Scarborough collaborate on facilitating education, training, research and development, demonstration, validation and commercialization of advanced technology within the regions they represent. The intention is to develop innovative, technology driven solutions that will fuel sustainable, resilient communities around the world.

At this year’s Collective Intelligence World Congress, EaRTH District will be highlighting a model for inter-institutional collaboration and the success stories experienced to date. EaRTH District merges the expertise, assets and resources of not only Colleges and Universities, but also builds upon its network of private industry, Indigenous Communities, government representatives and local community groups. With a joint vision to create a live-work-play ecosystem by supporting local workforce development, industry engagement, and infrastructure growth, new opportunities can be discovered, benefited, and replicated in other communities.
As a pre-recorded presentation, EaRTH District will highlight the contributions and activities from each institution and how external partners are becoming involved. EaRTH District will demonstrate the strength it brings to various collaborative research initiatives and workforce development programs for the greatest social, economic, and environmental impact. Please come visit EaRTH District as we navigate harnessing our collective intelligence to foster a just transition into a net-zero economy in alignment with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
