A Road Map to 100% Renewable Energy: Public Policy and Organizational Change

Friday, Sep 9, 2016 -

Time: 9:00am - 4:30pm

  According to the City of Vancouver’s Renewable City strategy, a viable route to using 100% renewable energy is one that includes partnering with business, community, non-profit organizations, schools, labour unions, faith groups and surrounding municipalities and various levels of government, public agencies and the public. It is no longer enough to think ‘carbon-neutral” or carbon-trading as the go-to strategies for reducing GHG emissions. Real change requires our society to switch to zero- and partially zero emissions technologies as soon as possible. What is the road map? In this workshop you will learn more about the strategy for getting to 100% renewables led by major cities around the world including Vancouver and specifically what your organization can do to reduce energy use, increase the use of renewable energy and increase the supply of renewable energy. The focus of this strategy is on space heating in buildings and transportation, the measurement of current GHGs, setting targets and evaluating results. Energy policy options will also be examined. Biography Mark Kenneth Jaccard is a professor of sustainable energy in the School of Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada. Mark’s PhD is from the Energy Economics and Policy Institute at the University of Grenoble. He has published over 100 academic papers, most of these related to his principal research focus: the design and application of energy-economy models that assess the effectiveness of sustainable energy and climate policies. For this career research, he was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 2009 and British Columbia’s Academic of the Year in 2008. He has contributed to several major processes and assessments, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (93-96 and 2010-2012), the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development (1995-2001 and 2007-2009), Canada’s National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy (2006-2009), British Columbia’s Climate Action Team (2007-2009), and the Global Energy Assessment (2008-2012). In 2006, his book, Sustainable Fossil Fuels, won the Donner Prize for top policy book in Canada. Fee: $393.75

FREE WEBINAR: Asking Styles: A Revolutionary Concept in Fundraising

Thursday, Sep 15, 2016 -

Time: 10:00am - 10:45am

There is no one right way to ask for a donation. Some people take great care preparing well-organized and complete presentations. Others prepare with just a few talking points and then use the energy of the prospect to guide the conversation. Some people are energized by the prospect of tying down a gift. For others it is a great act of courage. You have your own Asking Style, and if you learn to ask in your Style, you will be more comfortable, confident and successful as an asker. Are you a Rainmaker? Go-Getter? Kindred Spirit? Mission Controller? A mix of two Styles? Join Brian Saber, President of Asking Matters, to learn about the revolutionary concept of Asking Styles created by his company. You'll learn: - The unique strengths you bring to the table and how to apply them to the ask - Which prospects are the best match given your Asking Style - How to craft your Case for Support in your own words and Style - What to watch out for along the way As a bonus, all attendees will get a handout on How to Support Each Asking Style Presented by Asking Matters President Brian Saber: Brian is the president of Asking Matters, a web-based company that teaches people how to fundraise and motivates them to get out and ask for gifts. He has spent more than 30 years in the non-profit community, most of those as a front-line fundraiser for a variety of organizations including Brandeis University, Northwestern University Settlement House, Hudson Guild, and The Children's Brain Tumor Foundation. He consults, trains, and speaks regularly around the country on the topics of asking and, more generally, fundraising. He is the co-author of two e-books: Inspire Your Board to Give and The Asking Matters Guide to Selecting Prospects.

Promoting Literacy in Pakistan: A Twenty Year Retirement Activity

Thursday, Sep 22, 2016 -

Time: 12:30pm - 1:30pm

  Pakistan, population almost 200 million, is a very conservative and patriarchal country, mired in many external and internal conflicts. It lags behind its major neighbors in many developmental indices. The adult literacy rate is only 55%. More than 24 million children are out of school, the majority of them are girls. In this talk, Dr. Iqbal will describe how, after his retirement in 1996, he wanted to promote literacy in Pakistan, especially for poor children. With the support of his family, he founded a registered charity: The Maria-Helena Foundation (MHF). There are four types of organizations providing primary education in Pakistan: a) Governments; b) Private for-profit organizations; c) Private not-for- profit Civil Society Organizations (CSOs); and d) Madrassas run by religious groups that provide mainly Qur’anic (religious) education. Many Government schools are dysfunctional and their infrastructure is crumbling. Also, many teachers are political appointees who are sometimes absent from schools, resulting in minimal teaching and poor student performance. While the private for-profit schools do better than the Government schools, their fees are too high for low income families. The Maria-Helena Foundation, in partnership with Pakistani CSOs, has helped establish 20 non-profit permanent small primary schools with a total student population of about 4,000. These schools are run on a combination of tuition fees and donations collected locally. The Foundation is also supporting 15 one-room one-teacher schools located in rented rooms. In these schools teachers’ salaries are paid by the Foundation, and textbooks and notebooks are provided free. About 450 students are benefiting from this free education. The Foundation also offers several merit scholarships, and fee-concessions to poor students.
