The conference theme is "Canada's Political Environment and the Politics of the Canadian Environment." Experts will be presenting their research findings. Moderated by Miranda Schreurs, director of the Environmental Policy Research Centre (FFU) of Freie Universität Berlin, scientists from Canada, Great Britain, and Germany will discuss the renaissance of nuclear energy in Saskatchewan and the importance of the Oil Sands in Alberta. Other discussion priorities include the question of how Canada's political landscape has been changed by ecological issues as well as environmental challenges facing cities, countries, and international relations.
