    This lecture video was recorded in Iceland as a part of the Gund Institute Ateliers program titled "Measuring Genuine Economic Progress: a Travel-Study to Iceland". Spring 2010 Following the global financial system collapse of 2008-09, the world's nations are looking for new measures of genuine economic progress that capture the full range of economic, social, and environmental benefits and costs of economic growth. The nation of Iceland was one of the countries hit the hardest by the global recession, but they are also perhaps best prepared to reorient their macroeconomic indicators and policy around a new era of sustainable development. This problem-based course will investigate the history and evolution of macroeconomic indicators, and design and calculate the first genuine progress indicator for Iceland. The course will have a particular focus on energy systems design and greenhouse gas emissions as Iceland tries to become the first net carbon neutral economy in the world. Currently over 70% of Iceland's primary energy comes from hydroelectric and geothermal, however this is posing its own challenges in the next phase of economic development. Meets online during Spring 2010 semester, followed by a travel-study portion of the atelier in Iceland from May 15-29, 2010. Taught jointly with the University of Iceland.

            This webinar primarily targeted natural resource managers from federal and state agencies, NGOs, decision-makers, and aquatic ecosystem stakeholders. An expert panel of practitioners linked scientific expertise to specific restoration issues in an effort to direct participants toward practical management solutions. Observations were offered based on aquatic ecosystem case studies exemplifying both successes and failures encountered when applying ecosystem restoration techniques to real world management scenarios in large river bottomland ecosystems. Presented information revealed principles and practices directly applicable to adaptive management of natural systems. Moderator Patrick S.

              In the next decade, more than 500 projects in oil, gas, forestry and mining will affect many Aboriginal communities across Canada. There are already debates taking place on issues like: the role of Aboriginal communities in these developments; the sharing of the wealth generated; the environment; foreign investment; transportation of output and more. However, there is very little discussion on ‘how or if’ Aboriginal women are to play key professional and business roles in natural resources management and development. The Idea Connector Network and its research partner, the Proteus Canada Institute, produced, on Tuesday, March 26, 2013, an online “Dialogue” session wherein a panel of women, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal thought leaders, explored issues in imagining new realities and innovative opportunities for women to play key roles in natural resource development. The event was delivered using online webinar technology as part of the ICN Building the Future research series, an exercise wherein discussions among panellists and participants lead to developing a shared "vision" of what new realities or different opportunities in the period 2018 – 2025 could be brought to Aboriginal women. The session led to a number of tangible and intangible outcomes, thanks to a systematic process of reasoning about the future, helping imagine and understand what future role Aboriginal women could play in the development of natural resources and what actions taken today could bring about the type of results wanted or avoid certain unwanted outcomes. These discussions are now available as a source for decision-making and strategy building by organizations, corporations and individuals.
