Speaker: Timothy MacNeill, Senior Teaching Professor and Director of Sustainability Studies, Ontario Tech University

Presentation: "Sustainable Development, Degrowth, and Technological Innovation"

Bio: Dr. Timothy MacNeill’s research focuses on globalization, inequality and sustainable development. This involves three major streams of investigation. First, he measures the impacts that international investment flows and corporate practices have on marginalized, typically Indigenous, communities and ecosystems in developing countries. His second stream of research explores the ways in which economic, political, cultural and social systems may be re-imagined and asserted via indigenous and other social movements to yield environmental sustainability and social equity. The third is research on the ways in which economic, social, cultural and political institutions impact human behaviour.
